California Fails in Price Transparency

California gets an F when it comes to consumer’s ability to find information on health care costs. In fact, this information is almost completely unattainable to consumers, according to a report by the Catalyst for Payment Reform and the Health Care Incentives Improvement Institute. Yet recent studies suggest consumers are asking for this information. The five main groups of consumers with a significant interest in price information are those with high-deductible plans, those in plans that promote participants to choose cost-conscious providers, those who are shopping for elective or non-emergency procedures and surgery or shoppable conditions, those who are seeking maternity care and/or routine procedures such as screenings, and those who are under 44.
