A WEDI forum addresses the difficulties in providing consumers with accurate estimates of healthcare expenses in advance of receiving services.
The No Surprises Act is based on the premise that cost-conscious consumers who get accurate healthcare price information before services are delivered will be empowered to make wiser decisions.
The challenges facing providers in their early efforts to comply with the Act by preparing simple, understandable and accurate price quotes to consumers were addressed at the WEDI Summer Forum in Chicago August 2 and 3.
