No Surprises Act Information and Resources
The No Surprises Act (NSA) requires psychologists and other health care providers to give uninsured and self-pay patients a good faith estimate of costs for services when scheduling care or when the patient requests an estimate.
The new requirement began on January 1, 2022, to reduce the number of unexpected medical bills. Providers are required to inform patients of expected charges before the service is provided. Future regulations will require psychologists to give good faith estimates to commercial or government insurers when the patient uses that insurance.
