AHA shares hospital price transparency recommendations with legislators

The American Hospital Association outlined three recommendations regarding hospital price transparency policies ahead of a May 16 House Ways and Means Committee hearing on the subject: 

  • Review and streamline existing transparency policies, including the hospital price transparency rule and No Surprises Act, with a primary objective of reducing potential patient confusion and unnecessary regulatory burden on providers.
  • Continue to convene providers, payers and patients for input on how to make federal price transparency as patient-centered as possible. 
  • Refrain from advancing additional legislation or regulations that may further confuse or complicate providers' ability to provide meaningful price estimates while adding unnecessary costs to the health care system.
