Medical Society Releases Practice Guide on New State and Federal Price Transparency Requirements
The Massachusetts Medical Society is pleased to share a comprehensive practice guide developed by the MMS to support physician practices navigating new state and federal price and transparency disclosure requirements related to surprise billing.
These new, overlapping disclosure requirements on physicians related to notice and price transparency have created significant challenges for physicians seeking to comply in good faith with both laws. While the implementation of the state requirements has been delayed, some version of these state requirements is likely to take effect on July 31, 2022. Most of the federal requirements are currently in effect, as of January 1, 2022. As such, this resource is intended to help physician practices prepare to understand whether and how both the state and federal disclosure requirements may apply for any given patient and to provide considerations for operationalizing these new requirements.
