For every 1,000 signatures, NationofChange will send a letter to Congress, asking them to enact legislation that will end unregulated health care pricing.

Did you know that billing rates are not set nor regulated in the health care industry?

Billing is determine on a case by case basis. A simple blood test can range from $10 to $400 at the same lab. Hospitalization can result in a bill that varies by thousands of dollars for the same services.

We are asking Congress to force providers to show transparency and publish legitimate pricing. This allows for health care providers to still set their own rates but prohibits them from charging different rates for different patients.

Hospitals especially are known for overcharging patients – especially those with no insurance. In a recent study it was found that fifty hospitals in the United States were charging uninsured consumers more than 10 times the actual cost of patient care.

We need a system in which the public can search for a medical procedure online and see pricing for all providers in their area. This will save patients thousands of dollars as well as get rid of the “in network” and “out of network” system that causes confusion and costs an enormous amount of money and administrative burden every year.

Tell Congress to stop unregulated health care pricing, thus allowing for lower health care costs and an end to restrictions on patient choice.
