CHA Urges Members to Affirm Support for AHA Patient Billing Guidelines by Dec. 31

For CEOs, CFOs, government relations executives, finance & reimbursement staff, legal counsel

CHA reminds members to affirm their commitment to the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) voluntary patient billing guidelines by the Dec. 31 deadline.  

Affirming your support of these guidelines — which are largely consistent with policies already required under state and federal law — demonstrates your hospital’s commitment to billing and price transparency best practices that deliver for patients, regardless of their ability to pay. The AHA plans to publish a list of hospitals and health systems that have made this commitment in early 2022.  

To sign on, a hospital representative will need to complete a brief survey. A hospital-specific link to complete this survey was sent from AHA to the hospital CEO or other primary contact on Oct. 28. If your hospital is part of a health system, the AHA email was sent to the health system CEO or primary contact. If your primary contact didn’t receive the email, email [email protected] and include your organization’s name, city, and state to obtain a new survey link.
