Despite Biden Admin’s Concessions, Providers Regroup to Challenge Surprise Billing Regs

The Texas Medical Association (TMA) doubled down on its lawsuit to overturn federal regulations implementing the No Surprises Act (NSA), the 2020 law that banned balance medical billing, even though national provider groups like the American Medical Association (AMA) and American Hospital Association (AHA) abandoned their suit against the Biden administration after federal agencies released the latest NSA regulations in August.

Meanwhile, insurers and providers have already filed tens of thousands of balance billing cases with arbitrators — which means that providers have ample financial incentive to pressure the administration through legal action, experts tell AIS Health, a division of MMIT.
