Court dismisses AHA lawsuit over disclosure of negotiated rates; HANYS supports AHA appeal
HANYS is disappointed to report that a federal district court dismissed the American Hospital Association’s challenge to CMS’ final rule requiring hospitals to publicly disclose their privately negotiated insurance rates.
HANYS and our members have a long history of advocating aggressively to protect consumers from unexpected and unnecessary out-of-pocket health spending. But as outlined in HANYS’ amicus brief filed earlier this year, CMS’ disclosure requirements would not accomplish this goal.
We fully support AHA’s efforts to appeal and seek an expedited review. This is critical, as the final rule will take effect Jan. 1, 2021. Contact: Sandi Toll
