HFMA Region 6 Webinar – Price Transparency – More Than Just a CMS Requirement
April 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Effective January 1, 2019, CMS required all hospitals operating within the U.S. to make public via the internet a list of the standard charges for items and services it provides. In this session, we will review the CMS requirement and focus on next steps as hospitals develop policies for setting prices and communication strategies that move them closer to the goals of price transparency.
Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the progression of price transparency, why price transparency is getting so much attention, and whether hospital prices really matter to hospitals and consumers.
- Review and understand the CMS requirement for hospitals to make public their standard charges via the internet.
- Discuss and understand methodologies hospitals are using to evaluate and set charges that are rational and defensible
