Robert Wood Johnson FoundationLink to more items from this source
Sept. 15, 2021

"Researchers found that hospital price transparency rules could be strengthened to measure price variation, empower employers to make better purchasing decisions and enable more accurate oversight of insurers by: [1] Expanding the number of hospitals publishing pricing data by increasing the maximum penalty from $300 per day to $5,500 per day. [2] Requiring hospitals to present data uniformly, through a 'machine readable' template that complies with [CMS] regulations. [3] Asking hospitals to display their commercial and Medicare rates side-by-side."
