Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services released data for the first time comparing average hospital charges for the 100 most common Medicare claims. A Washington Post analysis of the 10 most common medical procedures showed hospitals in Texas routinely had higher prices than the rest of the country.

The federal government has rejected a request by Texas to be excluded from a new law that would limit how much health insurance companies can spend on overhead. The law is part of recent changes in health care law that Texas officials say is unconstitutional.
