Wisconsin Hospital Association Launches Web Site Detailing Retail Prices of Procedures
Posted by Clark Venable on 2/19/2005
"The Wisconsin Hospital Association on Thursday launched a Web site that allows consumers to compare prices at hospitals statewide for more than 60 'common medical problems,' the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The site does not list actual prices charged to insurers but rather the 'retail,' or list prices, as well as the overall discount insurers collectively receive off a facility's retail rates for all procedures combined."
The site also contains links to quality information for each facility (example).
