  It is suggested that you review the recommended articles to glean any helpful information. Analyze the role of the paradigm shift under the Affordable Care Act and discuss how transparency will play a greater role in pricing of health care. In your opinion, will consumers begin to demand increasing transparency in pricing? Provide at least one peer-reviewed reference outside of your textbook to support your position. Do you believe accrediting commissions (e.g., the Joint Commission) will demand greater transparency in pricing?  How will these demands be weighted as compared to individual consumers’ demands? Again, be sure to cite research that supports your statements.
