Click on the link to an article published in the New York Times (12/4, Abelson) reporting the American Hospital Association and other hospital groups filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration “over a new federal rule that would require them to disclose the discounted prices they give insurers for all sorts of procedures.” The hospital groups claim the new rule “is unlawful, several times over,” because the Administration exceeded its authority by issuing the rule and that disclosing the privately negotiated prices violates their First Amendment rights.

The Hill (12/4, Coleman) reports the hospital groups requested “an expedited decision to prevent hospitals from needing to prepare for the rule if it is ultimately ruled unconstitutional.”

Reuters (12/4, Joseph) and the Wall Street Journal (12/4, Armour, Subscription Publication) also cover the story. New York Times reporting
