Health Care Price Transparency Act Advances in Congress



The Health Care Price Transparency Act (H.R. 4822) advanced out of the U.S. House Representatives, Ways and Means Committee on July 24, 2023.

It would also codify the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Hospital Price Transparency Rule, which includes requirements that hospitals post a machine-readable file of their standard charges and provide a list of at least 300 shoppable services.
