The push for health care price transparency is nothing new and can be traced back almost 15 years. When CMS released their final 2019 Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) rules including “requirements for hospitals to make public, a list of their standard charges via the internet”, it further underscored CMS’ continued effort for hospitals and health systems to provide price transparency.

This webinar will provide a brief background on pricing transparency issues for hospitals and health systems and then will take a deeper dive into what actions organizations can take to prepare for the CMS pricing transparency requirements that are effective January 1, 2019.

Finally, we will provide a checklist of recommended steps to ensure your facility is ready for the 2019 IPPS Price Transparency regulation.

After This Webinar You'll Be Able To:

  • Understand what the 2019 CMS proposed rule on pricing transparency means for your health system or organization
  • Initiate the important steps that your organization needs to take to prepare for the CMS requirements
  • See how technology can be leveraged to develop rational and defensible pricing and learn a simple 10-step process to derive a rational price
  • Learn how to use claims, payment, and unit cost data to develop average charge and payment profiles by procedure to supplement the online publication of your chargemaster to provide patients more useful information and/or for determining discount thresholds for patients with self-pay or high-deductible plans
