As Congress begins formulating the next COVID-19 stimulus relief, among measures to improve Americans' health and economic well-being, it is critically important to include systemwide health care price transparency. Transparency is needed now more than ever with the global coronavirus pandemic inflicting abrupt hardships on many Americans. Recently, Cynthia A Fisher, Founder of partnered with YourUpdateTV to discuss the importance of healthcare price transparency.

A video accompanying this announcement is available at:

System-wide healthcare price transparency can become law by passing the Healthcare Price Transparency Act, requiring hospitals and insurers to reveal their hidden prices, as part of the next COVID-19 stimulus package.

This non-partisan issue will do more to stimulate the economy than the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, and it can be done at no cost to the taxpayer.

Transparency means more than better healthcare. It will provide economic prosperity for individuals, families, businesses and the economy. American individuals and businesses need a functional, competitive marketplace in healthcare like in grocery, travel and retail.
