Aimed Alliance Submits Comment to HHS in Response to Proposed Rule on Hospital Transparency


On September 27, 2019, Aimed Alliance submitted a comment to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in response to the agency’s proposal to require hospitals to publish additional information about their prices to allow consumers to make better price comparisons for health services between different hospitals and health systems. The proposed rule, titled Calendar Year 2020 Medicare Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System and Ambulatory Surgical Center Payment System Proposed Rule, was published by HHS on July 29, 2019. Aimed Alliance supports many of the transparency provisions in the proposed rule but cautions HHS against requiring hospitals to publish overly broad information about pricing that could serve to confuse consumers instead of informing them.
