Chairman Lamar Alexander: Donald Trump Administration Price Transparency Rule Will Protect Patients, Contain Costs

 

U.S. SenateMaryville, TN – Senate health committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today said the Trump Administration’s final rule requiring health insurers to disclose price and out-of-pocket costs information will protect patients and contain costs, adding that Congress should do its part by passing the bipartisan, bicameral Lower Health Care Costs Act.

“You can’t lower your health care costs until you know what your health care costs,” Alexander said. “The Senate health committee and two House committees agree on provisions to increase transparency, consistent with today’s action by the Trump Administration which will help patients have a clearer understanding of what their health care costs by requiring health insurers to disclose greater pricing information.”
