This story is part of a partnership that includes , and Kaiser Health News.Hospitals around the country are afraid to send out hundreds of thousands of bills related to COVID-19 testing.

But many employers with self-funded health plans seem to believe they’re exempt from the rules.When testing kits were still scarce, Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, fired up its clinical labs. It almost single-handedly took over testing in much of Tennessee. Other health systems...

Analysis: Get Ready For The Vaccine — They’re Never Simple

May 21, 2020If there is a silver lining to the flawed U.S. response to the coronavirus pandemic, it is this: The relatively high number of new cases being diagnosed daily — upward of 20,000 — will make it easier to test new vaccines.To determine whether a vaccine prevents disease, the study’s subjects need to be exposed to the pathogen as it circulates in the population. Reopening the economy will likely result in the faster spread of the coronavirus and therefore more opportunities to test a vaccine’s efficacy in trial subjects.Under a proposal under discussion by a committee set up by the...
