CHARLOTTE, North Carolina,, October 8, 2021 / PRNewswire / – This weekend, the NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) will look like a little different when the famous Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE No.43, driven by Erik Jones, starts its engine at Bank of America ROVAL ™ 400.
Images adapted from campaign art by renowned artist Shepard Fairey will put on the legendary car as part of an unprecedented partnership between Richard Petty Motorsports and Power to patients, who are teaming up to inform consumers that by law prices are now a patient’s right. Healthcare consumers can now get behind the wheel, charge hospital rates, and compare for the best quality of care at the best price. Consumers who are in control of their health decisions and know the real prices in advance will be able to reduce their costs of care and coverage.
“Our team has joined the ‘Power to the Patients’ movement to raise awareness about the fight against hidden prices in healthcare,” said Brian Moffitt, CEO of Richard Petty Motorsports. “A patient’s right to access information about their health care is crucial and we are honored to join the campaign. Power to the Patients empowers patients and their families to understand the financial obligations of their medical decisions. ”
According to reports, only six percent of hospitals are in compliance with a federal law that came into effect on January 1, 2021, requiring all hospitals to post their actual prices in advance. However, within the same hospital, the prices of the same service may vary by thousands. This prevents patients from comparing prices and lowering costs by their choices.
That’s why Power to the Patients works to educate every American that “prices are now a patient’s right” and encourages them to “demand prices from hospitals” so they can take control of their health. physical. and financial health, while preventing price gouging, overbilling and fraud.
The partnership, announced at a live event in Times Square this week, is a reminder that while Americans are all following the lead of drivers like Erik Jones and get behind the wheel of their health care, we will win the race to cut costs.
