FL earns 'F' for healthcare price transparency

The Miami Herald, March 25, 2014

Healthcare prices remain a big secret, hidden from consumers in all but a handful of states, according to a report released Tuesday by a California-based nonprofit that gave Florida and 44 other states failing grades for neglecting to enact legislation and to create a public-access website that gives patients the data they need to budget personal medical expenses. The report was produced in partnership by Catalyst for Payment Reform, a nonprofit that partners with large employers such as Walmart and AT&T to advocate for healthcare price transparency, and Health Care Incentives Improvement Institute, a Connecticut-based nonprofit that offers healthcare cost consulting.
