Fierce Healthcare reports a spokesperson for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)  confirmed the agency has sent its first wave of warning letters out to hospitals breaking federal rules requiring them to disclose payer-negotiated prices.

CMS has been auditing hospitals’ websites and complaint submissions since the rule went into effect on January 1 and began sending out warnings in April, the spokesperson said.  Hospitals that received the warning are given a 90-day window to address shortcomings outlined in the letter.
