In February 2022, AAMFT provided an updated statement on the No Surprises Act, including a letter that AAMFT and other professions have sent to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra outlining problems with the No Surprises Act as applied to behavioral health providers.

AAMFT members with questions concerning the impact of the No Surprises Act on their practice can schedule a legal consultation with AAMFT staff.
