SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Background Patients in the United States often have difficulty understanding the medical billing process. Currently, there is no standard for consumer medical billing documents, and bills vary in content, presentation, and use of jargon. Consumers also receive bills from multiple sources and may not understand the rationale for each bill, or know that they will be receiving multiple bills for one episode of care. HHS recognizes that many health care organizations have been doing important work to address the complex problems that individuals face as they navigate the medical billing process. A national design and innovation challenge is a unique way to both support these ongoing efforts and catalyze innovation. II. Provisions of the Notice The Challenge has two objectives: Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\10MYN1.SGM 10MYN1
