Author Hernan Osuna - 21.2.2024

American rock titans Foo Fighters will play a private, one-night-only event in Washington, D.C., hosted by Power To The Patients, a non-profit organization that fights for a more affordable, accessible and equitable healthcare system through true price transparency. The concert takes place on Tuesday, March 5.

Veteran rappers Fat Joe, who has been at the forefront of music’s awareness of the organisation, and Chuck D will also attend.

When we were asked by Power to the Patients to help raise awareness of the need for transparency in healthcare pricing, we immediately said yes. People suffering from illness and injury shouldn’t have to worry about being bankrupted by surprise charges for their treatment.”, Foo Fighters said.

With lawmakers, government officials, and their dedicated staff in attendance, Foo Fighters will join the drive to raise awareness about the inequality and uncertainty created for millions of patients when hospitals and insurers hide actual upfront prices. With more than 100 million Americans suffering from medical debt due to surprise bills and lack of accountability, it’s time for all elected officials to come together and turn the page on our nation’s broken and opaque healthcare system.

The Foo Fighters join the likes of Fat Joe, Jelly Roll, Wyclef Jean, French Montana, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Chuck D, Method Man, Lainey Wilson, Valerie June, Shepard Fairey and rock band Everclear in promoting the organisation. Fat Joe has taken the message to Capitol Hill, visiting members of the U.S. House and Senate and urging them to pass legislation to codify and expand healthcare price transparency requirements.

New polling shows 94% of Americans support healthcare price transparency, yet only 36% of hospitals comply with rules requiring them to disclose prices.

In December of last year, a bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced a bill to strengthen and expand healthcare price transparency requirements, hold hospitals and insurers accountable, and stand up for patients, workers, employers, unions, and all healthcare consumers. (S.3548).

Power to the Patients is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to creating a more affordable and equitable healthcare system through price transparency. For years, hospitals and insurers have been disregarding rules requiring them to disclose prices to patients in advance of care. Patients, families, workers, unions, and employers need systemwide healthcare price transparency to make fully informed decisions about the cost and quality of their care. All healthcare consumers have the right to upfront prices. Our Health. Our Money. Power to the Patients. Additional information and PSAs at
