Date: August 11, 2021
Time: 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Effective January 1, 2021, each hospital operating in the United States is now required to provide publicly accessible standard charge information online about the items and services they provide in 2 ways:
- Comprehensive machine-readable file with all items and services
- Display of 300 shoppable services in a consumer-friendly format
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will host a webinar on Price Transparency focusing on how hospitals can meet the requirements of the Hospital Price Transparency Final Rule for posting standard charge information in the comprehensive machine-readable file. CMS will review the document “8 Steps to a Machine-Readable File of All Items & Services” and highlight specific good and bad examples of hospital compliance.
