Should patients pay more for the same test performed in a hospital?

Physician Tanya Feke has written an article in KevinMD about the cost of services. The topic is whether hospitals should be able to charge more for providing the same service, e.g., an echocardiogram, as an outpatient facility and be reimbursed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for the higher fee. CMS appears ready to say “no” with respect to 66 of those services.
