Could Concern About Hospital Price Transparency Boost Push for More Hospital 340B Transparency?
The bipartisan leaders of the U.S. House Energy and Commerce (E&C) Committee and its Health Subcommittee wrote to U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra this week asking him to enforce “full compliance” with the Trump administration’s hospital price transparency rule.
“We are concerned about troubling reports of some hospitals either acting slowly to comply with the requirements of the final rule, or not taking any action to date to comply,” the Democratic and Republican committee leaders said. The E&C Committee has jurisdiction over the 340B and Medicaid programs.
