HOUSE SUBCOMMITTEE HOLDS HEARING ON HEALTHCARE TRANSPARENCY AND COMPETITION
On Tuesday, the House Committee on Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Health held a hearing on transparency and competition in healthcare. Five panelists testified including the CEO of Pullman Regional Hospital and a Senior Fellow from the American Enterprise Institute.
The majority of the discussion focused on the hospital price transparency rule, the transparency in coverage rule, pharmacy benefit managers, drug pricing policies, and consolidation. Committee members and the panel highlighted potential areas for oversight and legislation such as codifying price transparency policies. MGMA Government Affairs will continue to engage with the Committee on these and other priority issues.
