HANYS comments on the transparency in coverage proposed rule
HANYS submitted comments this week to the Trump administration on the legal and public challenges of requiring health plans to publicly disclose their negotiated rates and their allowed amounts for all in-network and out-of-network providers.
HANYS submitted similar comments in September in response to a separate proposal that required public disclosure of hospitals’ “gross charges” and “payer-specific negotiated charges” in multiple formats. The American Hospital Association and other national healthcare associations filed a legal challenge on the hospital price transparency requirements set for implementation on Jan. 1, 2021. HANYS fully supports this litigation. Contact: Melanie Graham
