HCA hospital in NH fined for violating price transparency rule

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has issued fines to two hospitals for alleged price transparency violations, one of which is an HCA-owned hospital in Rochester, NH – Frisbie Memorial Hospital. 


HCA was issued a $102,660 fine on April 19.


As of April, CMS has issued more than 730 warnings and 269 corrective action plan requests to hospitals not complying with price transparency laws.

In February, PatientRightsAdvocate.org released its semi-annual price transparency report revealing that only 24.5% of US hospitals – and zero HCA hospitals – were in full compliance with pricing transparency rules.
