ESTABLISHING A COMMISSION ON HEALTH CARE POLICY, COST CONTAINMENT, AND PRICE VARIATION: would establish a Commission on Health care Policy and Cost Containment—an independent administrative commission that is not subject to the supervision or control of any other executive officer or agency. The commission would be tasked with various responsibilities, including, but not limited to: (i) enhancing the transparency of provider organizations; (ii) monitoring and reviewing the impact of changes within the health care marketplace; (iii) reviewing variation in prices and insurance reimbursement rates among health care providers; (iv) holding public hearings, at least once a year, to examine health care provider, provider organization, and health insurance carrier costs, prices, trends, and cost trends and the factors that contribute to them; and (v) ensuring the uniform reporting of revenues, charges, costs, prices, and utilization of health services.
