Executive Order on Pricing Transparency
In June of 2019, President Trump issued an Executive Order on healthcare pricing transparency. The HHS has been directed to create regulations that will require hospitals to disclose prices in a patient-friendly format and estimate out-of-pocket costs.
Within 60 days, HHS has been ordered to propose new rules that would require hospitals to post standard charge information based on negotiated rates. Hospitals may, for the first time, be required to disclose the proprietary rates they’ve negotiated with insurers – a significant shift for the industry.
In this complimentary webinar, we’ll share analysis on how these new pricing transparency mandates would affect hospitals and provide recommendations and proactive steps hospital teams can start taking to minimize risk and ensure their pricing is compliant, transparent, and rational with negotiated reimbursement rates.
