Following the passage of the No Surprises Act in 2020, AAMS formed an NSA Implementation Task Force to coordinate with the Public Affairs and Finance and Reimbursement Committees on the development of an AAMS position related to the implementation
of the law.
After months of work and discussions with members, as well other hospital and healthcare associations, the AAMS Board of Directors voted overwhelmingly to approve the positions as outlined in our public letteraddressing
the implementation of the No Surprises Act.
These positions are consistent with the positions of the larger healthcare community while recognizing the unique issues faced by every AAMS member as they relate to the prohibition of balance billing and the Independent Dispute Resolution (IDR) process.
AAMS leadership and staff will present these positions to the membership and discuss their impact in more detail on a live AAMS Public Affairs Forum on July 8th at 1 pm Eastern. An invite to the forum will be coming shortly under separate cover.
Below, please find the official positions of other healthcare organizations and a summary document showing a comparison with the AAMS position.
