Go Beyond Transparency

To really help people we need to take the complexity, and pain, out of healthcare navigation. Our industry can go beyond delivering the foundation established by the final hospital and health insurance price transparency rules. We can provide useful insights in context to someone’s overall health needs and guidance on their options. We can ensure the information is delivered thoughtfully to help people make better choices, and not overwhelm them with numbers and industry benefit jargon. This is how price transparency can be truly effective at helping people navigate healthcare and lowering rising healthcare spending.
