Many of the largest insurers in the US are revealing how much they pay for medical services on a region-by-region basis to help consumers better spend their money. The nonprofit Health Care Cost Institute has unveiled the data at Guroo.com with information from insurers such as United Healthcare, Aetna, and Humana.
The website reveals the average local cost for 70 routine diagnoses and tests administered in most states, but does not include charges that often get marked down.
While the website is a step forward in terms of transparency, it also conceals sensitive data. Patient names have been removed.
