An Act Requiring Healthcare Facilities To Provide A Price List Of Its Healthcare Services Including Incidental Expenses And Medical Supplies That Can Be Charged In The Medical Bill

  • By providing a complete and reliable price list, to include all incidental expenses for room and amenities, meals, medicines, and use of medical equipment and technology, it would enable patients to compare costs and freely decide where best to obtain the services or supplies that they need. Being informed of the prices in advance would also help the patients in estimating their medical bill when they are admitted to the healthcare facility. It would also safeguard patients against misleading and unfair sales acts and practices in the healthcare facility.
