New web site shows costs of SC hospitals

The Item / Associated Press, January 29, 2014
The state's Medicaid agency on Monday introduced an easy-to-navigate website showing the financial data of South Carolina's 60 hospitals that will eventually allow patients to comparison shop for health care. The agency's multi-stage project is aimed at bringing transparency to health care costs, ultimately driving costs down, by posting data online so that it's easy to access and interpret, said Director Tony Keck. "This is an important step in the ongoing conversation about how we deliver and pay for care in our state and across the country, and how we can purchase the most health at the least cost," he said.
