As of January 2021, hospitals were required to comply with price transparency requirements issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). These requirements included posting a machine-readable file containing payer-specific negotiated rates and a second file with at least 300 shoppable services.
PYA will offer a complimentary webinar that addresses proposed new penalties for non-compliance and examines common errors providers have made in posting the files. And, as more and more providers are posting their data, PYA thought leaders will discuss how to use that information in benchmarking negotiated rates. In this session, PYA Principal Bob Paskowski, Senior Managers Kathy Reep and Dave Ebel, and Director of Business Intelligence & Analytics Jason Hardin will also:
- Review the CMS requirements related to posting of rates.
- Share insight into identified errors in the current data.
- Share insight into hospitals’ negotiated charges for their contracted payers.
- Examine variation in pricing for similar healthcare services.
- Explore PYA’s new “Negotiated Pricing Dashboard.”
The one-hour webinar takes place Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at 11 a.m. Eastern. Attendees will earn one CPE credit for participating.
