Healthcare Price Transparency

More and more consumers are burdened with high-deductible health insurance plans, yet don’t know what price they are going to be charged for medical services before procedures. At Pioneer, we believe it’s time to end the secrecy. Transparency about medical costs is the key to reducing those costs. Pioneer Institute Senior Fellow Barbara Anthony, well-known consumer advocate, brings decades of expertise in government and public policy to help drive an important debate about healthcare costs.
