52 pages. "GAO was asked to study cost and quality information for consumers. This report examines [1] information on cost and quality available to consumers from selected transparency tools, [2] characteristics of effective transparency tools, [3] limitations, if any, in the effectiveness of CMS transparency tools, and [4] CMS efforts to expand cost and quality information available through transparency tools.... GAO recommends that HHS's CMS take steps to improve the information in its transparency tools and develop procedures and metrics to ensure that tools address consumers' needs. HHS concurred with the recommendations and provided technical comments that were incorporated as appropriate." [GAO-15-11, published Oct. 20, 2014, released Nov. 18, 2014]
