The Trump administration is calling for greater transparency about how healthcare policy is made.
In a letter to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price and his deputy, Kathleen Sebelius, have called for an increase in the public’s ability to have access to the most up-to-date and accurate information about the healthcare system.
In the letter, Price and Sebelias said that the American people deserve to know how decisions are made about their healthcare.
They also said that “there is no better time than now to put the public at the heart of policymaking.”
The Trump administration has long maintained that healthcare reform should be a top priority, and a recent report by the Congressional Budget Office has suggested that a Republican-controlled Congress could approve a $2 trillion healthcare bill by the end of the year.
