The No Surprises Act’s primary purpose is to ensure that patients do not receive health care bills far exceeding their awareness or expectations.  Although the most heralded portions of the law (usually pertaining to hospital services) do not apply to most chiropractic physicians, another key provision related to “good faith estimates” does apply to chiropractic offices.

This course is designed to help attendees understand the requirements for Good Faith Estimates (GFE) and implementation strategies for their practice. We will cover what GFEs are, who should receive them, when they should receive them, and other specific requirements related to Good Faith Estimates. Join Marc Abla, CAE in finding the best strategies for your practice to achieve and remain in compliance with the No Surprises Act.

This session was originally presented by Marc Abla, CAE on October 2, 2022, and sponsored by the Illinois Chiropractic Society
