The President announced today the finalization of the CMS rule requiring hospitals to post their secret prices, including cash prices. He also announced a proposed rule to require the same of insurance companies. Important and transformational step for patients, employers, taxpayers and other purchasers of care. By the way, the immediate reaction of the four major hospital associations? Announce their intent to sue to keep hiding prices from patients. (Have hospitals become the Bond villains of health care?).
KABOOM! Trump Administration finalizes rule to end secret hospital prices.
