  • A new report found that several hospitals are violating a requirement to post the prices for common goods and services online. The report, published by consumer advocacy group PatientRightsAdvocates.org, compared 20 price disclosures made by hospitals and health insurers in accordance with the Hospital Price Transparency Rule and the Transparency in Coverage (“TiC”) Rule.
