The majority of surveyed U.S. hospitals are ignoring a federal order to publicly post their prices, a new report by an advocacy group found, raising questions about how strongly the Biden administration is enforcing a Trump-era measure.

A review of 1,000 hospitals by Patient Rights Advocate, which supports the price transparency measure, found that only 14% were fully complying with the rule. Others obeyed the pricing rules, but not the other required measures, while a majority did not post sufficient rates.
