The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid is hosting a virtual webinar on March 21 on the No Surprises Act, also known as surprise billing, and its applicability to dental providers.
CMS Chief Dental Officer Natalia Chalmers, D.D.S., Ph.D., will lead the one-hour discussion, which will focus on the requirements to provide good faith estimates to uninsured and self-pay patients and the patient-provider dispute resolution process.
CMS scheduled this webinar after hearing from the ADA about dentists' questions and concerns on surprise billing and the good faith estimates.
The webinar will take place on the Registration for Technical Assistance Portal platform on March 21 from 1-2 p.m. ET. All participants must register before 4 p.m. ET on March 20 in order to attend the event.
