Illinois bill requires hospital discounts for patients without insurance

Chicago Tribune, September 25, 2008

The legislation requires hospitals to offer significant discounts to uninsured Illinoisans. Instead of paying the full sticker price—typically two to three times the actual cost of care—consumers will pay charges based on the actual cost plus a 35% markup.
