Hospital Price Transparency: Will It Lead to Lower Prices?


The New York Times partnered with Hilltop researchers Morgan Henderson and Morgane Mouslim for a front-page article and a companion article in its Sunday, August 22, 2021 edition on hospital pricing. Drs. Henderson and Mouslim began looking into this issue after the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule that required hospitals to publish the prices of their services so that consumers and others would better understand what the costs of these services were.

In a new HillTopic post, Hilltop Executive Director Cynthia Woodcock discusses the issue of hospital price transparency and Drs. Henderson and Mouslim’s research.
