The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will host an Aug. 11 webinar on complying with the hospital price transparency rule, which took effect Jan. 1. The rule requires hospitals to disclose all of their privately negotiated rates with health insurers, discounted cash prices and gross charges in a machine-readable file, and to provide a patient price estimator tool or negotiated rate information on 300 “shoppable” services for patients. The 2 p.m. ET webinar will focus on the requirement for hospitals to post their machine-readable file on their websites. Register for the webinar here
