Power to the Patients featured on Erik Jones’ #43 at Charlotte

Richard Petty Motorsports and Power to the Patients announce a partnership for the NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 on Sunday, October 10, 2021. Power to the Patients will be the primary partner of the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE driven by Erik Jones at the Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway. The No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE will feature the Power to the Patients’ logo and call to “Demand Hospital Prices.”

Richard Petty Motorsports and Power to the Patients formally announced their partnership and revealed the unique paint scheme of the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE at a live event today in Times Square. They were accompanied at the car’s unveiling by patients who have joined the race to lower the cost of healthcare through price transparency. These patients’ lives have been harmed and devastated by unexpected hospital bill overcharges that could have been prevented with access to competitive and fairer prices.

patients, workers, unions, and employers, of their right to control their healthcare decisions by choosing the best care at the best prices and lowering their cost of care and coverage. NASCAR drivers are among the world’s best, and if we all get behind the wheel like them when it comes to our healthcare, we can win the race to drive down costs. On January 1, 2021 a federal law required all hospitals to post their actual price upfront. Starting July 2022, the transparency in coverage rule takes effect, requiring health insurers and health plans to post their actual prices so all Americans can enjoy systemwide price transparency.

Unfortunately, hospitals have hit the brakes on this movement by refusing to comply with the law. The Biden Administration is about to finalize a federal order to meaningfully increase penalties on noncompliant hospitals that will put price transparency in overdrive. The No. 43 Power to the Patients Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE informs patients that they can shift their healthcare into a higher gear by demanding prices to lower their costs and give their families financial certainty.
