256 hospitals receive price transparency non-compliance letter from CMS
As reported by Alia Paavola of Becker's, as of late September, CMS has issued warnings to 256 hospitals deemed not in compliance with its price transparency rule.
CMS said that it began sending warning letters to hospitals not in compliance with the regulation in April. The agency told Bloomberg that it had sent about 165 warning letters by mid-July. By the end of September, it warned 100 more hospitals.
Hospitals have 90 days to address the violations before CMS decides whether additional compliance actions are necessary.
"CMS intends to continue its monitoring and enforcement activities and will issue additional warning letters on a monthly basis," a CMS spokesperson told Bloomberg.
