Price Transparency

Price Transparency initiative promotes insured patient access to out-of-pocket price estimates for health care services, and partners with the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems.

In its continuing effort to create greater value for health care purchasers, the OHLC Price Transparency initiative promotes insured patient access to out-of-pocket price estimates for health care services, and partners with the Oregon Association of Hospitals and Health Systems for median prices paid for common hospital inpatient and outpatient procedures. This work has led to the implementation of the OHLC sponsored website www.whatsmycost.org which gives patients the ability to understand what the typical cost of a particular procedure would be, as paid by insurers, and what their out-of-pocket costs would be for their personal health insurance plan.
