Last week AAHKS joined more than a dozen other national medical societies to write the Congressional leadership of the Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee regarding Section 5 of the “Health Care PRICE Transparency Act 2.0,” (S.3548) which would require price transparency of items and services provided in ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs). Section 5, which the letter opposes, imposes new requirements on ASCs that are not only duplicative of existing transparency requirements but are likely to result in consumer confusion. For more information, read the letter.
