Study finds wide disparity in hospital pricing in California

Los Angeles Times, January 16, 2008

The study was commissioned by large health purchasers, and the sponsors said they were troubled by the wide variations in hospital prices and noted that the average charges of hospitals in the Sacramento region were 30 percent higher than the statewide average for the same mix of services.
