Panacea Announces No-Cost Diagnostic Review of Hospital Chargemaster ahead of CMS Final Rule Posting Deadline

The comprehensive diagnostic review includes analysis of CMS Price Transparency shoppable items and services to alert providers of risks and opportunities.

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Panacea Healthcare Solutions, Inc., the leader in healthcare coding compliance software and consulting services, announced today they are offering health systems a no-cost diagnostic review of their entire chargemaster pricing, drug prices and methodologies. This review will also provide special analytics related to the CMS Price Transparency shoppable items and services requirement and will identify key areas of risk and opportunity. To learn more, providers should visit Panacea’s CMS Price Transparency webpage.

Only a few weeks remain for providers to comply with the January 1, 2021, CMS Price Transparency deadline. The rule requires hospitals to include the gross charges and negotiated rates for ALL items and services in a machine-reachable file, and where applicable, prices or charge-based rates for 300 shoppable items and services (of which CMS defines 70).

“We are proud to offer this service at no cost, and it includes a diagnostic review of room and board rates, ancillary charges by HCPCS code, drug and supply charge-to-cost mark-ups, drug pricing methodology, and a special analysis using Panacea’s table of shoppable items and services – or one provided by the client,” said Frederick Stodolak, Panacea’s Chief Executive Officer. “The diagnostic review will also include customized peer group data, as well as a presentation of results by Panacea outlining specific areas of risk and opportunity, so action can be taken early 2021.”
