Texas Medical Center’s largest hospitals are not fully complying with a federal mandate to publish a price list they negotiate with private insurers – information that could be used to lower the cost of health care, study finds from the Houston Chronicle.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have asked hospitals to release the information – which includes negotiated prices for basic services such as x-rays and lab tests – before January 1, 2021, or face fines of up to at $ 300 per day. The Houston Methodist Hospital, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and Baylor St. Luke Medical Center had not all posted their negotiated prices on Friday.
