National Alliance Hospital Fair Price Initiative
Setting the Record Straight: The Urgency of Achieving Hospital Fair Price
September 28, 2023, Charlotte, NC
Momentum from the work of employers and other healthcare purchasers, coalitions, and policy makers at both the state and federal levels to make healthcare more transparent and affordable is growing. Efforts to achieve fair prices and transparency to lower the cost of healthcare that holds down wages and stalls business growth have been challenged every step of the way by hospitals.
As part of the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions’ Hospital Fair Price initiative, North Carolina Business Coalition on Health is working with fellow coalitions, our members, policymakers and other stakeholders to demand value and fairness in the biggest segment of the healthcare industry to ensure fair prices for their employees and families.
To support these efforts, the National Alliance has released a new resource, Setting the Record Straight: The Urgency of Achieving Hospital Fair Price, that identifies and debunks 10 of the top hospital industry inaccuracies around high, rapidly rising, and indefensible hospital prices.
