The Importance of Hospital Price Transparency, and What It Means for Employers (PDF)
Benefits Quarterly, published by the International Society of Certified Employee Benefit Specialists [ISCEBS]Link to more items from this source
Oct. 4, 2021

"Employers need high-quality, transparent pricing information to create innovative benefit plan designs and negotiate more favorable prices with insurers. Access to pricing information can allow employers to become better informed health care-purchasing consumers. The National Hospital Price Transparency Study (RAND 3.0) found that employers pay two-and-a-half times more than Medicare for health care services, and there is no link between hospital prices and quality or safety. Employers can help lower prices by identifying and helping employees and their families navigate toward lower cost, high-quality health care providers."
