No Surprise: IDR Pause to End Soon
CMS has temporarily paused the No Surprises Act’s Independent Dispute Resolution (IDR) process following a federal judge’s decision.

CMS has since affirmed that the administration fee will be returned to the original $50 and the IDR process will soon reopen for new submissions.
