Surprise Billing Resource Center

Effective January 1, 2022, consumers have new billing protections when getting emergency care, non-emergency care from out-of-network providers at in-network facilities, and air ambulance services from out-of-network providers. The No Surprises Act (NSA) established new federal protections against surprise medical bills and balance billing for services received from out-of-network providers.

The Quadax Resource Center is here to help keep you up to date on the latest regulations.
