The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Hospital Price Transparency rules can seem complex and understanding what they mean to you and your facility can be challenging.

Bland & Associates is here to help you understand these price transparency rules.

The basic tenants of the price transparency rules can be summed up with three main requirements for hospital systems:

  • Give consumers real-time, personalized access to cost-sharing information.
  • Disclose the price hospitals negotiate with insurance providers.
  • Create a list of 300 “Shoppable” Services, including 70 that are directly selected by the CMS.

Facilities that do not comply with Hospital Price Transparency rules can face required corrective actions including fines of up to $5,500 per day!
