The No Surprises Act

Dear Wonderful LPCANC Members!

LPCANC is committed to keeping you informed and up-to-date on policies, procedures, and law changes on the local, state, and federal levels that affect us as mental health providers.  It is important for LCMHC’s to understand changes that can affect them in  providing ethical and exceptional services to clients.

On January 1, 2022, The “No Surprises Act”  (NSA) went into federal  law.  Aimed to increase price transparency and reduce the potential for unexpected medical bills, the No Surprises Act requires that providers inform clients of an expected charge for a service before the service is provided.

Please take a moment and review the documents below as additional resources to you as a member of LPCANC. I encourage you to share these documents with other LCMHC’s in our state who may not be a member of our LPCANC family, and would benefit from this information.  It is our desire to have every LCMHC in North Carolina associated with their state organization as a member!  Thank you for your continued support of our LPCANC family. I hope that the information contained in the attached document will be helpful to you in your professional practice.


Carmen Davis, Ph.D., LCMHCS
2022 President, LPCANC
