OH health industry fighting state over medical price transparency law

January 11, 2017

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A new Ohio law would require hospitals and doctor’s offices to be more transparent about what it costs to treat you. It’s supposed to go into effect in January, but it’s being blocked by the Ohio health care industry.

This law would require hospitals and other health care providers to give you a good faith estimate on what you would end up paying so you are not blindsided by bills. But the healthcare industry has filed a lawsuit to stop it.
