Nov 16 - To Lower Costs, Trump to Force Hospitals to Reveal Price of Care
 

 
A proposed federal rule would make hospitals list the prices they negotiate with insurers, allowing consumers to seek better deals for care.

The Trump administration on Friday announced it would begin forcing hospitals to publicly disclose the discounted prices they negotiate with insurance companies, a potentially bold move to help people shop for better deals on a range of medical services, from hip replacements to brain scans.

“For decades, hospitals, insurance companies, lobbyists and special interests have hidden prices from consumers, so they could drive up costs for you, and you had no idea what was happening,” President Trump said Friday afternoon in the White House’s Roosevelt Room. “You’d get bills that were unbelievable and you’d have no idea why.”

Patients, he said, have “been ripped off for years.”

The federal rule, which would not take effect until 2021, is part of a broader push by Trump officials to make health care markets more transparent to patients. The administration also unveiled a proposed rule to require insurers to allow patients to get advanced estimates of their out-of-pocket costs before they see a doctor or go to the hospital.

Mr. Trump rolled out the initiative personally, providing some counterprogramming to the second day of impeachment hearings while showing his willingness to take on powerful interest groups like hospitals and insurers.

Mr. Trump was “taking historic action to make health care prices transparent for consumers, yet the coverage on all the cables remains on the impeachment inquiry charade,” his press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, tweeted. “Dems should get back to work — just like our” president.

The hospital industry, which has long kept its negotiations with insurers secret, said it would challenge the rule in federal court. “This is a very radical proposal,” said Tom Nickels, an executive vice president with the American Hospital a*sociation, a trade group.

Hospitals say the administration does not have the authority to compel them to disclose their private negotiations and compared the order to forcing private parties to reveal trade secrets.

But if the rule survives, “it’s a game changer,” said John Barkett, a former Obama administration official who is now a health policy expert at Willis Towers Watson.Knowing the price of a colonoscopy or knee surgery before it takes place “would be hugely helpful,” he said.

He might be onto something here. I believe they charge different rates for state insurance and through work insurance. I do know some clinics do discriminate against state insurance. I’m not the super political kind of guy but I see both sides and understand. That being said, I worked too hard and too much since I was legally able to.

People like Obama, Hilary, Biden, and other career long dems have constantly not supported medicare for all. Medicare for all is not universally supported by the democratic party just the young progressive.

My clinic system already does we saw this coming.
But here's the thing I am on the business side, the receptionists and phones make decent money do you want a moron taking medical information? Delivering it to doctors? No, so you are paying for them, the cleaning peope, the supplies, the rooms, the everything.
You know what would be better? Universal healthcare I hear it all the time from our former Canadian patients. They still have benefits after moving usually.

I’m family with people in the business and I find it hard to believe that someone in the business wants universal healthcare. Many places around here have gone under because of wildly late payments from insurance companies because of the ACA. Companies spend a sh*tload of money keeping track of the clusterfu*k that is government insurance.

Chances are they went under with EMR, not ACA. Smaller clinics couldn't pay for it.
I had family in healthcare and most of my circle is healthcare since I've worked in it my whole adult life. I sit in meetings about payors and reimbursement, about changes in pricing models.
Delayed insurance payments suck, but patients are unable to pay, then don't. Couple that with seeing multiple people wait for treatment until they are so far gone they will never see home again it gets to you. I know many in administration and even more providers who want UHC. It makes more sense than performance based care.
