HHS Asked to ‘Expeditiously Address’ GFE Provision￼
July 29, 2022
A workforce group takes aim at part of the No Surprises Act and asks HHS to act.
The Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) released a letter to HHS regarding the No Surprises Act.
The workgroup takes aim at the good faith estimate (GFE) convening provider/facility provision saying it has significant concerns with how this part of the act can be successfully adopted by two providers.
In the letter, WEDI recommends HHS consider an initial phase of the GFE requirement initiated by a patient request, extend the enforcement discretion period, identify standards-based solutions, and phase in the one- and three-day time requirement.
