New price transparency requirements are on their way! The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) just released the first part of new, far-reaching healthcare regulations to enact parts of the No Surprises Act. In addition to ending the practice of “surprise billing,” the law also requires price comparison tools and new patient protections through price transparency – and it all goes into effect in less than six months. Plan for the 5-year regulatory journey of opening up, posting prices, and providing advanced estimates by identifying opportunities for automation and reuse. Proactive planning will help avoid project pitfalls and make projects more manageable.
Join eHI, Axway, and industry and patient representatives to learn more about the new requirements and their impact on the healthcare system. The webinar will also explore common threads across recent healthcare data-sharing and transparency tools to identify actions that can help meet new requirements, create new experiences for members, and decrease the administrative burden.
