White House seeks disclosure of actual health care prices

White House seeks disclosure of actual health care prices

New rules from the Trump administration on Friday require insurers and hospitals to disclose upfront the actual prices for common tests and procedures to promote competition. However, the sweeping changes faced stiff pushback from the health care industry. ’After many, many years, we finally have transparency’, Trump said speaking at the White House.

Good! This should have always been a law. My dentist has already been doing it and it's nice to know the price before you get treatment.

Thank you! the whole insurance world needs to be torn down and have the roots ground up so we can start fresh, the whole system is rigged and terrible.

Good. Competition can only lower the costs of healthcare.

So he wants others to release their financial information, but after 3 years he still hasn't released his own tax returns. Interesting how he thinks there should be a double standard.

Trump is interfering in "every" corporate business that makes large sums of money! Before he's done he will have infiltrated the inner workings of American enterprises no matter where they exist. He's changing so much, history will be recording the effects of his "evil" works for the next 400 years!

You see why Trump is hated by some on the right too. Healthcare is so high bc the Dems are in bed with the malpractice lawyers and the republicans are in bed with big medical business.. Although they do give money to dems also.. Obama ran on lowering med costs and people were talking about the lawyers and big med bussiness before he ran.. When Obama was elected he piled the worst of socialism, without any of the benifits of socialism, on top of tge worst of capitalism, without any of thr benifits of capitolism.... Now the dems and republicans fight among themselves ,and nobody talks about malpractice/lawyers and big pharm/medicine.. They are getting us made at each other and duping us .

I've been pushing for this for years. And if we were given health spending accounts instead of insurance cards we'd be forced to find the lowest cost. Furthermore an open, centralized system of actual reviews and ratings of services and doctors - AND these disclosed prices - would be the perfect formula for the market.

I am a fan of competition and publicly disclosed prices for major expenses such as medical care.

You Americans are getting hosed on health care. If a country can't provide health care for its own people, then the people don't own their own country.
