Priority Health Partnership to Enable Better Transparency

Priority Health has connected with a Tennessee company, Healthcare Blue Book, which publishes cost data for medical procedures at a range of providers. Via this partnership, Priority Health will provide its members a level of transparency that health care experts say could further drive consumerism in health care. The partnership will allow Priority Health members to look up and compare the costs for physician office visits and more than 300 different diagnostic tests and medical procedures based on contracted rates charged by care providers.
