Reviewing CMS’s Updates to the Hospital Price Transparency Rule and Updates on No Surprises Act Implementation

King & Spalding will host a one-hour roundtable webinar on January 31, 2023, to discuss the latest developments surrounding the Hospital Price Transparency Rule and the No Surprises Act.

In the CY 2024 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System Final Rule, CMS finalized proposed changes to its Hospital Price Transparency regulations—which require hospitals to make public the standard charges of the items and services they provide. The final rule dictates the form and format that hospitals must use to display their standard charges, requires hospitals to encode all applicable standard charge information for an expanded set of data elements, and enhances CMS’s enforcement processes for noncompliance.

Topics for discussion include:

  • Review of CMS’s finalized updates to the Hospital Price Transparency Rule
  • Review of recent enforcement activity for non-compliance with the Price Transparency Rule
  • Forecasting enforcement coming in 2024

Panelists will also provide an update on the No Surprises Act implementation in the last quarter of 2023. Highlights include finalized administrative fee rulemaking and a complete reopening of the Independent Dispute Resolution portal. Additionally, we will discuss the largely critical report issued by the Government Accountability Office regarding the No Surprises Act implementation.
