New Senate bill targets insurers in transparency push
Modern Healthcare

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) on Wednesday proposed a bill requiring insurers to tell people what they would have to pay out of pocket for any in-network treatment or prescription drug.

The bill is part of the broader push in Congress and from the Trump administration to force healthcare prices out in the open.

The Senate health committee led by Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) is expected to release a packet of bills shortly all aimed at cutting some of the fat out of the healthcare system to save money for patients and the government.
