No Surprises Act Resources

As of January 1, 2022 federal regulations require certain patient protections to address concerns about surprise bills.  These protections address emergency care as well as disclosure requirements for all uninsured or self-pay services, and will, at some point in the future also include patients with insurance.  The regulations formalize some of what psychiatrists already do when communicating fees to patients.  The APA posted a summary of the key requirements along with links to templates.
