WASHINGTON, DC USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- SEPTEMBER 1, 2021: Read the Accountable Care Learning Collaborative (ACLC) (free!) brief Revealing Value? Hospital Price Transparency about how price transparency is a lever for advancing value-based care and payment models. In theory, recent regulations from HHS promote accessibility of price information from hospitals that should aid in comparisons across facilities. The reality is not so clear-cut. This brief discusses how you might harness hospital price data to inform your value strategies.

Never Pay the First Bill is a primer for anyone who wants to fight the predatory health care system--and win. Every year, millions of Americans are overcharged and underserved while the health care industry makes record profits. We know something is wrong, but the layers of bureaucracy designed to discourage complaints make pushing back seem impossible. At least, this is what the health care power players want you to think. Never Pay the First Bill is the guerilla guide to health care the American people and employers need. Drawing on 15 years of investigating the health care industry, Marshall Allen shows how companies and individuals have managed to force medical providers to play fair, and shows how you can, too.

He took on the challenge. From there, Matt worked for Karis for nearly a decade before leaving to found a series of successful startups which he grew to the point of acquisition.
