The transparency rule, requiring hospitals to publish a consumer-friendly list of payor-negotiated rates for healthcare services went into effect on January 1, 2021. It’s unclear whether Biden will revise the rule, finalized by the CMS in late 2019 or if the new administration will exercise enforcement discretion as providers work to implement the change. This session will explore impact on both payors and providers.
