New Law Adds to Hospital Billing Transparency

By April 15, 2016Blog

A new law in Florida gives patients receiving treatment in a hospital facility the right to request a good faith estimate of reasonably anticipated charges for the treatment of their condition. Hospitals in the bay area charge wildly different amounts for the treatment of identical conditions. Hopefully, the new transparency law will empower patients to make informed healthcare decisions and will put pressure on hospitals to charge more reasonable amounts for services.
