Description



An Invitation to Attend a Briefing on Survey Results for How People Find and Use Health Care Price Information

In recent years, insurers, state governments, employers, and other entities have been trying to make health care price information more easily available to individuals and families. In this changing landscape, how do Americans find and use this information?

The New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth), Public Agenda, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) invite you to join them for the public release of national and state (New York, New Hampshire, Florida, and Texas) surveys on how people view, seek, understand, value, and respond to health care price information.

Conducted by Public Agenda with support from RWJF and NYSHealth, the surveys offer new data that can contribute to current health care policy debates. The data show a large gap between the information people need and ongoing transparency efforts. Among the findings, many people are not aware that doctors’ prices vary for the same services. Importantly, people say there is not enough information on how much medical services cost and that states and medical providers should play a larger role in helping people find and use price information.


Speakers are:

  • David Sandman (moderator), President and CEO, NYSHealth

  • David Schleifer, Director of Research, Public Agenda

  • Jo Porter, Director, Institute for Health Policy and Practice, and Co-Chair, All-Payer Claims Database Council

  • Josh Seidman, Senior Vice President, Avalere Health

  • Lynn Quincy, Director, Healthcare Value Hub, Consumer Reports
