Posted on July 29, 2019

WASHINGTON, July 29, 2019 — Senate health committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the Trump Administration proposal to give patients more information about hospital prices:

“This step by the Administration to help patients know better what they are paying for health care services is complementary to several provisions in the Alexander-Murray Lower Health Care Costs Act of 2019 that was approved by a vote of 20-3 by the Senate health committee last month. We will carefully review how the proposed rule and our legislation interact.”
