Public scrutiny hasn’t turned fully on hospitals’ role in costs, either. People don’t go to the hospital that often and they like the idea of having one nearby. But there are signs that the hospital lobby will soon feel the heat.The Trump administration wants to force hospitals to disclose the prices they’ve negotiated with health plans, a move the hospital industry hates.. In addition, those surprise bills that have enraged so many and garnered headlines over the last few years? They mostly come from hospitals. Congress shows signs of stepping in to end those bills but, again, the hospital lobby is fighting hard to keep that from happening.
In addition, as Axios reports, “federal payment cuts to hospitals are set to take effect this fall, and Senate Finance Chairman Chuck Grassley has hinted that he wants to ensure at least some of those cuts will really happen.” While sad, we have much gratitude for the many writers, editors, researchers, reviewers, salespeople, and advertisers who kept us going and made Managed Care a standout publication. And not to be forgotten, we thank you for reading our publication and visiting our website.
