Trump-era health care transparency rule will soon take effect

The left is losing its mind over this one.

Breitbart News reports that a Trump-era healthcare price rule took effect on Friday. 

The rule has to do with transparency about the actual cost of health care services.

Background

Former President Donald Trump finalized this particular rule in October of 2020, shortly before he left office.

At the time, Breitbart News reported:

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Department of Labor, and the Department of Treasury unveiled the finalized rule that would allow more than 200 million Americans with private health insurance to have access to “real-time” price information.

The outlet added:

This would allow consumers to have better information about healthcare costs before receiving treatment. It would also allow patients to shop between different healthcare providers for the best value service.

This rule finally took effect on Friday.

“A huge moment”

Back when the policy was finalized, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany called the rule the “most far-reaching price transparency reform in the history of American healthcare.” And, according to a new report from Axios, many healthcare industry insiders would agree.

Some of these insiders told Axios that the price transparency rule is “massive,” and they called its implementation “a huge moment.”

“It’s like the biggest milestone in U.S. health since the ACA was rolled out. It’s massive what’s about to happen,” one insider said. “This is a huge moment for the industry,” another added.

This latter insider, Nate Maslak, co-founder and CEO of Ribbon Health, added this:

I think for a long time we just kind of said: This is just impossible. I guess we’ll just have to live with it. In no other industry would we do that. Ever. I can’t imagine going to a restaurant and saying: “Well, this chicken might be $30 or $400 and we’ll just have to find out.”

The reason why the left is losing its mind is that it was former President Trump that made it all happen. Here we are amid all of the turmoil caused by the left and the Biden administration, and Trump, who has been out of office for the better part of two years now, is still making positive things happen. Nothing can be more painful to the Democrats than this fact.
