The Health Care Price Transparency Act (HB 935) applies to urgent-care centers owned by hospitals and requires them to post the costs of their 50 most frequently-provided medical services on a 15-square foot sign. It was passed 107-7 on Thursday.

The bill also allows primary care providers who voluntarily post their prices to skip their continuing medical-education requirements for two years.

A similar bill pending in the Senate (SB 1410) is called the Patient's Bill of Rights and Responsibilities.
