PatientRightsAdvocate.org released their third semi-annual Hospital Price Transparency Compliance Report. For this report, being issued nearly twenty months since the Hospital Price Transparency Rule took effect, PatientRightsAdvocate.org’s research team assessed compliance with the law by reviewing 2,000 U.S. hospitals out of the over 6,000 accredited hospitals in the country. Their review of hospital compliance found that consumers are still unable to benefit from the rule due to the continued widespread failure of most hospitals to fully publish their prices across all payers and plans. Meanwhile, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has only issued civil monetary penalties to two hospitals for noncompliance.
