CMS recently released a final rule mandating that hospitals post their standards charges online, including gross charges, negotiated rates, cash discounts and de-identified maximum and minimum negotiated rates. This webinar will unpack hospitals’ obligations for posting standard charges in a machine-readable format and for posting 300 "shoppable services" in a consumer-friendly format. It will also provide an update on the lawsuits filed against the US Department of Health and Human Services
to block the final rule from going into effect in Jan. 2021.
- Demonstrate compliance requirements for CMS’s price transparency rules.
- Describe and identify standard charges under the final price transparency rule.
- Define elements of posting 300 shoppable services in a consumer-friendly format.
- Examine potential litigation filled by industry stakeholders to block implementation of the final rule.
