|Hospital Price Transparency: CMS Issues Proposed Rule to Increase Penalties for Larger Hospitals Violating Disclosure Requirements|
Foley & Lardner LLP
July 23, 2021
"While the CMP for the smallest hospitals would remain unchanged, the annual penalty for noncompliance by the largest hospitals throughout a year would be $2,007,500.... CMS also has had reports that publicly available standard charge listing have not been as accessible as CMS intended or desired.... As a consequence, CMS proposes in the Rule that each hospital must ensure 'that the standard charge information is easily accessible, without barriers, including, but not limited to, ensuring information is accessible to automated searches and direct file downloads through a link posted on a publicly available website.'
