WHA Transparency Task Force Kicks Off Discussion on Surprise Billing and Patient Cost Estimates

July 02, 2019

The WHA Transparency Task Force (TTF) reconvened June 28 to discuss member efforts around price transparency. The TTF originated in 2015 to develop member tools and education relating to the Affordable Care Act’s transparency requirements that were being implemented at that time. The TTF is chaired by Brian Stephens, CEO of Door County Medical Center.

The TTF will meet to discuss legislation and current WHA member initiatives pertaining to surprise billing and patient cost estimates. The group will share and document best practices and will produce a report highlighting these discussions by the close of 2019.

For more information about the TTF, contact WHA Vice President of Public Policy Lisa Ellinger.
