New HealthAffairs Blog Describes Hilltop
Hospital Price Transparency Case Study

In a new HealthAffairs blog post, Hilltop researchers Morgane Mouslim, DVM, ScM, and Morgan Henderson, PhD, describe their continued work on hospital price transparency. Mouslim and Henderson have been investigating hospital price transparency and the effects of the January 2021 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) final rule that requires hospitals to publish the prices of their services. They conducted a case study of three compliant large hospitals to examine what use this new information about prices could be to patients, researchers, and policymakers and posit some answers in the new post. In an earlier post in HealthAffairs, they discussed their findings that 65 of the nation’s 100 largest hospitals were non-compliant with the CMS final rule.
