CMS urges hospitals to disclose prices, revamps meaningful use program
The CMS has proposed an overhaul of the meaningful use program and wants hospitals to disclose their prices to patients.
The changes were outlined in the proposed annual inpatient hospital rule. Overall, the CMS estimates the rule's various provisions will give hospitals $4.1 billion more in Medicare inpatient funding next year. If finalized, that amount is more than last fiscal year's $2.4 billion bump in inpatient funding.
