Yesterday a bill that will help make health care decisions more transparent passed in the state House of Representatives. Senate Bill 6228 will go back to the Senate for concurrence and will likely head to the governor’s desk to be signed into law. Sen. Mark Mullet, D-Issaquah, the prime sponsor of the bill issued the following statement:
“This was my top priority bill this year and I’m thrilled it will pass and be signed into law. Health care costs should not be hidden and consumers should have critical access to information to make the best health care decisions possible.
“As a result of this bill, consumers will be able to not only see what costs will be on their insurance providers’ website, but they will also be able to review and leave feedback on their patient experience.”
