What Health Care Costs: Bringing Price Transparency to the Medical Marketplace
Start Date: 1/23/2013Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 1/23/2013End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:
Providing consumers with meaningful and transparent information about their healthcare choices and ensuring that those choices are not exploitative is a critical component of health care reform under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Price transparency would allow consumers to compare prices before choosing a provider or hospital and, consequently, better anticipate their overall costs. Over the past several months, researchers at UC Hastings and UCSF have examined the current marketplace surrounding healthcare decisions as well as the solutions that propose to improve efficiency and lower cost in California. Please join them as they share their findings and recommendations on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 at 3:30pm and stay for a reception immediately following the presentation. Refreshments will be provided so please RSVP to by Friday, January 18, 2013 to ensure your place.
