New Hampshire praised for health care cost transparency

The Associated Press

CONCORD, (AP) — New Hampshire is once again being praised for helping people make educated choices about health care, and now it has some company.

Last year, New Hampshire was the only state to receive an "A'' rating from two groups, the Catalyst for Payment Reform and the Health Care Incentives Improvement Institute. In the most recent ratings, Colorado and Maine also got A's, while 43 states got "F'' grades for failing to meet even minimum standards.

New Hampshire's top grade derives from the free health price transparency website, that the state insurance department developed in 2007 and overhauled earlier this year.

The site allows residents to compare the price of various health care services across doctors, hospitals and outpatient facilities.
