President Trump is expected to release an order as soon as next week to force the health care industry to disclose its prices, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing anonymous people. The order may instruct federal agencies to use their powers to mandate the disclosures. Additionally, the Journal reports that the Justice Department may be used to address local hospital and health-insurance monopolies that the administration believes are driving up costs. Industry groups are mobilizing to thwart the plans, says the report.
