HHS taps 6 health systems for bill advisory panel

HHS has selected a number of leading health systems to serve on its advisory panel for the agency's "A Bill You Can Understand" challenge.

HHS' challenge is part of a national effort to simplify the patient financial experience by re-conceiving hospital bill design. As part of the advisory panel, administrative leaders from chosen health systems will evaluate, test and implement winning design solutions from the contest. 


The following systems will serve on the panel: Providence Health & Services in Renton, Wash., Cambia Health Solutions in Portland, Ore., Geisinger Health System in Danville, Pa., INTEGRIS Health in Oklahoma City, Okla., The MetroHealth System in Cleveland and University of Utah Health Care in Salt Lake City.

"Sometimes solutions are as simple as a clean, universally formatted bill that clearly outlines what insurance covers and what the patient owes," said Rod Hochman, MD, president and CEO of Providence. "But sometimes solutions are more complex and require cross-industry collaboration. [HHS'] challenge is a great way to engage many experts to find solutions."
