No Surprise Party

Thursday April 14, 2022
10: 00 AM – 11:00 AM CST

Surprises can be great—except when it comes to medical bills. Congress recently passed a federal law that stops most unexpected medical bills and (surprise) the Tennessee General Assembly may follow suit. Register in advance for TJC’s training to know when you should expect the unexpected and when you should not—at least concerning medical bills in Tennessee.

Just so you’re not caught off guard, the No Surprises Act is a federal law that seeks to stop most unexpected medical bills in situations where commercially-insured patients cannot meaningfully choose their provider or facility. But no surprise with any law involving ERISA and arbitration, it’s complicated. The No Surprises Act, which went into effect in January, generally applies to emergency care and scheduled care, but (no surprise) has some large exceptions and varies significantly by specialty. The Tennessee State Senate has also passed a similar bill, which the House needs to act on to become law.

The one-hour free training will provide the ins and outs of the new federal law and the proposed state legislation with an emphasis on Tennessee. Naturally, you’ll need to RSVP, so we’re not caught unaware.
