Making Health Care More Affordable: Price Transparency and Eliminating ‘Surprise’ Billing

Improving affordability remains a top issue for consumers, lawmakers and the health care sector. 

Just as there are challenges to making health care more affordable, there are many opportunities to reduce costs without compromising care. Hospitals are pursuing these opportunities in variety of ways. Many are tackling the affordability issue already, seeking change that makes sense for them and the communities they serve, and working to improve, price transparency and eliminate ‘surprise’ billing.

AHA's The Value Initiative provides thought leadership on the issue of affordability to hospital and health system leaders while also serving as a forum for knowledge exchange.
