THE JAMES MADISON INSTITUTE RELEASES NEW POLICY BRIEF PROMOTING HEALTHCARE PRICE TRANSPARENCY
Not only are Floridians struggling to afford healthcare as a result of the Biden Obamacare, they are also largely unable to know what services even cost. Price transparency is consistently the single most popular reform on healthcare public opinion polls, regularly garnering 90 percent public support. Today, The James Madison Institute released a new policy brief, “The Price is Right: Promoting Greater Transparency in Healthcare.” The report authored by Josh Archambault, visiting fellow at The James Madison Institute and president of Presidents Lane Consulting is a toolkit to improve the environment of price transparency in the Florida healthcare arena.
“Florida can be the national leader in price transparency in healthcare, but its state laws need a tuneup. Not all price transparency is created equal, so it is important to get patients the right information, at the right time, to receive the right care. This will create a dynamic market that leads to better patient outcomes and leave more money in their wallets to pay for groceries, a mortgage, or expenses for their kids.” — Josh Archambault, Visiting Fellow, The James Madison Institute; President, Presidents Lane Consulting
“Florida has made fantastic gains in healthcare policy over the last five years. We should absolutely continue that momentum and enact reasonable, practical, and meaningful reforms that help Floridians by making empowering them to be better healthcare consumers.” — Sal Nuzzo, Senior Vice President of Policy, The James Madison Institute
