Hospitals to list service costs online January 1st due to new federal rule

NEW YORK -- Hospitals will be required to post the cost of their standard services online, starting January 1, 2019.

Patients will be able to compare prices before seeking treatment.

However, some consumer advocates say while the information is beneficial, it's not completely transparent due to insurance price adjustments and other factors.
