For CEOs, government relations, public relations, and communications officers

Today, the American Hospital Association (AHA) responded to Sunday’s “60 Minutes” segment on hospital pricing that included interviews with California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and Glenn Melnick, a health care economist at the University of Southern California. 

While AHA worked with “60 Minutes” to provide perspective on issues such as provider and insurer consolidation and to convey the value of health systems and their benefits to the community, the story that aired did not present a balanced view of the current health care landscape as it relates to hospital prices and provider and insurer consolidation. 

AHA’s full response to the “60 Minutes” segment is available on the AHA website.
