Hospital Transparency

HB19-1001 Hospital Transparency Measures to Analyze Efficacy requires the Department of Health Care Policy & Financing (the Department) to develop and publish a report on hospital uncompensated care costs titled the Hospital Expenditure Report.

In order to complete the report, the bill requires:

  • Hospitals to submit historic, if available, and recent audited financial statements and Medicare cost reports to the Department.
  • Hospitals to report historic and recent financial and utilization metrics, acquisition transactions, and affiliation transactions to the Department.
