Trump Ready To Force Transparency In Healthcare Pricing With An Executive Order
Forbes

The Trump Administration wants to make it easier for patients and employers to comparison shop for healthcare. On transparency, one can’t fault the Administration for not trying.

So far, the measures implemented have mostly been baby steps. But, this is about to change as President Trump is expected to soon release an executive order on healthcare price transparency. If enacted, this executive order would mandate disclosure of prices throughout the healthcare industry, and be enforceable by federal agencies. It would provide patients and employers pricing data that reflect the negotiated rates between insurers, hospitals, and physicians.
