2013 Research Report: Health Insurance Plans and Transparency

HealthSparq commissioned a first-of-its-kind benchmark study on the health care transparency sentiment of plans as reported by health plan executives nationwide. The research was conducted by a third party research firm, The Cicero Group.

Highlights from the Benchmark Study:

  • Health care is shifting significantly toward greater transparency
  • Health plan decision makers increasingly value transparency
  • Health plans do not currently engage the full range of available transparency tools
  • Health plans expect to rely more heavily on external vendors to help them implement transparency tools in the future
