ON THE AGENDA | MAY 5TH, 2017 |
What are the policies and marketplace fixes that will address health care's price transparency issues?
Whether you consider yourself a health care policy expert or not, conversations about the price of health care are happening all around you. The research we’ve done focuses on the nuances of who is looking for price information (half of all Americans) before getting medical care and what sources they are going to (see the shortlist here). It’s also shown that people want more of this information and they want an easy, accessible and reliable way to get to it.
Most Americans believe there is not enough information out there on the price of medical services, and some are dissatisfied and even distrusting of sources of this information. What are the policies and marketplace fixes that will address these issues?
Next week, Director of Research David Schleifer will present the latest survey data on how people find and use prices in their decisions before getting medical care. He’ll join a group of experts in the health care consumer research and advocacy realm to discuss some promising ideas that can help Americans save money.
You’re invited to join the webinar next Thursday, May 11th at 2pm Eastern Time. You can also follow the conversation with #PriceTransparency. We hope to see you there!
