No American should ever face a surprise medical bill that can lead to financial ruin. Yet before the No Surprises Act (NSA) millions of patients received surprise medical bills from hospitals, physicians, and private-equity care providers that they did not expect at prices they could not afford. Today, AHIP and Blue Cross Blue Shield Association released a survey and analysis which found that in the first two months of 2022, the NSA prevented more than two million potential surprise medical bills across all commercially insured patients. The analysis also found that should this trend hold, more than 12 million surprise bills will be avoided in 2022.
