Tahoe Forest Health System has been named among 104 health systems in the U.S. with the best price transparency score by Turquoise Health. Nearly 5000 hospitals that provide a machine-readable file with pricing information online were analyzed.
Turquoise Health, a health technology company, recently released its first Price Transparency Impact Report that rates hospitals and health systems on their compliance to the federal requirement of publishing pricing information -- such as payer negotiated rates, list price and cash price – online on the services they provide. Based on seven different subcategories, Turquoise Health gave a transparency score on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the most transparent. Tahoe Forest Health System received a score of 5.
Tahoe Forest Health System is one of three health systems in the State of California to achieve the highest score. “We believe transparency on the cost of our health care services is important,” said Harry Weis, President & CEO, Tahoe Forest Health System. “By providing accessible pricing information and resources that can help our patients better understand charges and compare costs, they can make the best, informed decisions on their health care.”
