DHA Comments on CMS OPPS Proposed Rule

DHA submitted comments raising concerns with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed rule on Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment Services (OPPS). The proposed rule includes a requirement for hospitals to publicly post gross charges and “payer-specific negotiated charges” for all items and services and to display negotiated charges and other information for 300 “shoppable” items and services. In the letter, DHA opposed the proposed “price transparency” requirements that would have negative consequences on hospitals, patients and health care market competition.
