Federal Price Transparency Requirements

Transparency (Aug. 14, 2020) – While COVID-19 has been the main focus for hospitals over the last few months, many of you are now focusing on addressing the federal price transparency requirements that go into effect Jan. 1, 2021. The Kansas Hospital Association is here to help your organization navigate through the requirements by providing a variety of resources available on the KHA website.

As we approach 2021, it is vital that hospitals understand the requirements of the pricing transparency rule and options for compliance. During a webinar on Friday, Aug. 21, Kathy Reep, senior manager with PYA, will discuss hospital requirements related to transparency. King & Spalding Partner Chris Kenny also will address related compliance and legal challenges.

KHA also is working with the Kansas Health Service Corporation to identify a vendor or vendors that can best help you meet the transparency requirements as your team gears up over the next few months.
