I can't quite decide. On one hand price transparency is good. On the flip side, rural hospitals may potentially be negatively affected. Anybody understand this issue better and can explain it?

This will inevitably hurt providers as hospitals now employ most providers now. If a patient can't pay, its not gonna matter what the price is. As soon as they figure out what the "standard charges" are expect that to decline precipitously which will invariably makes its way to your paycheck. I am not a legal scholar and not sure if this can or will be appealed. AHA will drag their feet. I guess now we all know who the AHA will be supporting for prez.
