CMS issues the first civil money penalties against hospitals that failed to comply with federal price transparency laws.

Northside Hospital Atlanta will pay $883,000, while Northside Hospital Cherokee will pay $214,000.

CMS says that Northside Hospital Atlanta ignored its warning notice and argued that the best way for patients to obtain pricing information is to use its Price Estimate telephone line.

Northside Hospital Cherokee also ignored CMS’s warning and also intentionally removed previously posted pricing files from its website.

  1. Hey Tim, hope you get over it soon. My partner was miserable for 4 days before his RAT came out positive. 4 negative tests! I’m almost 3 weeks since my positive test (I gave it to him I’m sure) and finally getting energy back. The most persistent symptom (besides fatigue) is actually sore eyes! Make sure you get plenty of rest and I found steam helps.

    I think we are talking next week Tuesday but if you’re unwell we can change it. This is Teri Thomas, whose obscure handle Lildunebuggy has a Presidentisl classic song inspiration (I’m also CEO of Volpara). Long time reader.

    Get well soon.

  2. Check your oxygen saturation with a pulse oxymeter. It is the main metric to decide if you need go to the hospital.
    If it is 92% or below …you need oxygen supplement.

    Feel better soon and do repeat the antigen test…eventually it should turn positive.
