Price Transparency

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has enacted pricing rules that include requirements for hospitals to offer more transparent prices to patients for the items and services they provide.

While implementing these complex rules can be time-consuming, our turnkey solution allows hospitals to meet the mandate efficiently. Our Price Transparency solution addresses the two major components of the CMS requirement: 1) publishing the Charge Description Master prices with the associated payor-specific negotiated rates, and 2) publishing the detail for the 300 shoppable services.
