Webinar Recording

Effective January 1, 2019, CMS is requiring hospitals to post their current standard charges via the internet in a machine-readable format updated at least annually.

Pricing Details: $99 HAP Member Rate / $199 Non-Member Rate

Webinar Overview

Webinar package includes two tools created by HAP that can be customized for use in helping your patients understand hospital charge information: 

  • A one-page fact sheet (Hospital Charges–What Are We Talking About?)
  • A brief consumer video explaining what charges are and are not, which can be posted on hospital websites for viewing before charge information is available

Effective January 1, 2019, CMS is requiring hospitals to post their current standard charges via the internet in a machine-readable format updated at least annually. 

This requirement will spark renewed media interest and generate additional consumer questions about how much services cost and why. While everyone applauds CMS’ intent to help consumers understand what they will pay out of pocket, hospitals are also keenly aware of the complexity and challenges associated with posting a chargemaster for public use.  

Communications between financial and communications departments, and c-suites, are critical to ensure everyone is prepared and this webinar recording is a powerful training tool for your team.

Webinar Objectives

After this webinar you’ll be able to:

  • Understand what the 2019 CMS Price Transparency requirements mean for your organization
  • Describe the latest updates from CMS on this rule
  • Compare how hospitals are planning to comply
  • Prepare your communications team, finance leadership, and board members with internal and external communications strategies

Faculty take participants through a mock media interview to help navigate inquiries around what the requirements are, and the potential impacts on quality, competition, and price negotiations. Plus, participants receive a short consumer video and one-page fact sheet that can be customized for your hospital.
