Dear Colleagues,

Beginning Jan. 1, the Biden administration will increase the penalty for non-compliance with the hospital price transparency requirements.

The Final Rule (to be published on 11/16/21) will set a minimum civil monetary penalty of $300 per day for hospitals with 30 or fewer beds. For hospitals with more than 30 beds, they will be charged $10 per bed per day, which will cap at $5,500 daily.

Example:  250-bed hospital that is not publishing a compliant machine-readable file
Daily Penalty:  $2,500 = 250 X $10/day
Annual Penalty:  $912,500 ($2,500/day x 365 days)

The American Hospital Association immediately issued a response to the increased penalties:
