President Trump signed an executive order this week to increase healthcare price and quality transparency. The order will begin the regulatory process for federal agencies to help consumers better understand healthcare charges and their overall cost of care. Meanwhile, the Senate HELP Committee advanced their comprehensive lower healthcare costs bill with key provisions on surprise billing and broker compensation disclosure. On this week’s episode, NAHU’s Marcy M. Buckner and John Greene break down the executive order and NAHU’s views on the initiative. They also provide a recap of the Senate hearing and how NAHU worked with lawmakers and their staff to ensure that the surprise billing and broker disclosure measures were written in the best interest of consumers and our members.
