The MHA hosted a webinar Nov. 10 to assist members in complying with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) hospital price transparency final rule that takes effect Jan. 1. Hospitals will be required to post online, in a machine-readable format, their standard charges for all items and services provided and payer-specific negotiated rates for 300 “shoppable” services.
Another opportunity for hospital finance leaders to learn about the transparency regulations and resources available for purchase to assist with compliance is available Nov. 18, when representatives from PARA HealthCare Analytics will present an interactive webinar to explore solutions and strategies for compliance with the price transparency rule. PARA is a new MHA endorsed business partner that specializes in the healthcare revenue cycle. For more information on the Nov. 18 webinar, contact Rob Wood at the MHA.
