The administration is seeking your comments on their new price transparency rules from now until January 29, 2020.
Speak up: Tell the administration how and why you support having access to electronic health records, including price and payment information, BEFORE receiving care.
Special interest groups, including hospitals, are trying to block your access to this pricing information. Hospitals are suing the government to stop this rule from being enacted, because keeping you in the dark keeps them making lots of money with different reimbursement and markup games
Special interests should never supercede patient care. It's up to you to make sure the administration's new price transparency rules really benefit patients—not special interests.
It is your right to know and own your healthcare information. It is your right to access your healthcare records, including complete pricing information, without charge. And it is your right to compare prices and quality of care upfront—then choose what, where, when, how, and from whom you receive care.
This is your chance to not only be heard, but to also have a direct impact on healthcare pricing, access to information, and quality of care.
Act now: submit comments and support price transparency by 11:59 p.m. ET on January 29.
*Note: These proposed rules are the latest of a series of rules being drafted to create price transparency in our healthcare system. All comments will be directly sent to the U.S. Departments of Treasury, Labor, and Health and Human Services.
