SEPT 27: HEALTH CARE PRICE TRANSPARENCY

The Department of Health and Social Services proposes to adopt regulation changes in Title 7 of the Alaska Administrative Code, dealing with health care services price transparency, including the following:

  • A new chapter, 7 AAC 86. Health Care Services Price Transparency, is proposed to clarify AS 18.23.400. Disclosure and reporting of health care services, price, and fee information, including:
    • The method a health care provider and health care facility must comply with to
      • Report the price of health care services;
      • Post the price of health care services;
      • Provide a good faith estimate; and
    • The method the department will use to enforce the law.

You may comment on the proposed regulation changes, including the potential costs to private persons of complying with the proposed changes, by submitting written comments to the Department of Health & Social Services, Division of Public Health, Health Analytics & Vital Records, P.O. Box 110675, Juneau, Alaska 99801. Additionally, the Department of Health & Social Services will accept comments by facsimile at (907) 465-3423 and by electronic mail at clint.farr@alaska.gov .
