Medicare treatment costs in Metro Detroit posted online
A website that reports on the quality of health care at Metro Detroit hospitals now contains information on Medicare costs for various treatments. People can go to MyCareCompare.org to review the Medicare costs for heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical infection prevention and more, the nonprofit Greater Detroit Area Health Council said. The website also allows consumers to review a report to help them choose hospitals and physician organizations. It shows hospital ratings in patient satisfaction and care outcomes, including mortality rates for heart attacks and other conditions. Data from 35 hospitals in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, Livingston, Monroe and St. Clair counties is compiled from information reported to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, said Lisa Mason, the organization's director of cost quality.
