Affordable Care Act Tranparency
Pricing and Transparency
- Analyze the role of the paradigm shift under the Affordable Care Act and discuss how transparency will play a greater role in pricing of health care. In your opinion, will consumers begin to demand increasing transparency in pricing?
- Provide at least one peer-reviewed reference outside of your textbook to support your position. Do you believe accrediting commissions (e.g., the Joint Commission) will demand greater transparency in pricing?
- How will these demands be weighted as compared to individual consumers’ demands? Again, be sure to cite research that supports your statements.
