    Hospitals have posted the prices of their services, NBC News reported. Good luck making sense of them.

    Since Jan. 1, hospitals across the country have been publishing price lists online to comply with a new Trump administration rule.

    But the resulting documents, which can include as many as 60,000 items, are hard to decipher, with descriptions like “ABBOTT TECNIS TORIC ASPHERIC IOL ZCT300 21.0D SE 3.00 CYL.” and “FILL, PULL, VOID.” And if you're not a data analyst or a programmer, you might have trouble reading the files at all.
