2015: The Year of Health Care Cost Transparency

BCBSNC’s Transparency Tool

BCBSNC helped kick off an active year for health care cost transparency in January with the launch of a new transparency tool. It allows consumers to search by procedure or keyword to find an expected total cost for more than 1,200 procedures and tests.

“Many consumers believe that the highest cost facility is the highest quality facility, but that’s often not the case,” said Susan Weaver, MD, the company’s chief medical officer.
