Forbes: David McLean Reviews the No Surprises Act

What Is No Surprises Act

In an article published by Forbes Advisor about how Congress is attempting to tackle the issue of surprise medical bills for patients who unintentionally or inadvertently receive care from an out-of-network providers with the No Surprises Act, Partner S. David McLean Jr. said the law also protects uninsured patients by providing a Good Faith Estimate of charges upon request or when a service is scheduled.

“At this time, a Good Faith Estimate is not required to include items or services provided to you by another provider or facility, but you can ask them for a separate Good Faith Estimate if you know who they are. And if you later receive a bill that is at least $400 above the Good Faith Estimate, you may be eligible to begin a patient-provider dispute,” he told the publication.
