Trump transparency order puts ’shoppable’ healthcare in HHS hands

Hospital and insurer trade groups have allied to bash President Donald Trump’s latest executive order on rate disclosures.

The groups and consumer advocates are closely watching how far HHS will decide to go with its price transparency requirements, since the order itself left the details vague. In the executive order signed Monday, Trump gave the agency 60 days to write the hospital requirements on publishing “standard charge information, including charges and information based on negotiated rates and for common or shoppable items.”
