California Department of Insurance has launched a new website to help Californians better shop for health care based on both quality and price.
The site provides information on quality for five common conditions or procedures: childbirth, hip and knee replacement, colon cancer screening, diabetes, and back pain. And it gives cost information — by county for 100 procedures, ranging from treating a broken ankle to cancer chemotherapy.
Transparency is coming to a hospital near you. What are you doing to prepare for it?
