America's Health Insurance Plans [AHIP]
Oct. 1, 2015

There was wide variation in out-of-network charges from different providers for the same procedure.... For many procedures, [the authors] found regional patterns in the ratio of out-of-network charges to average Medicare fee at the state level."
