KQED Launches Health Care Cost Transparency Project
KQED has launched a new project, called "Price Check," that aims to boost health care cost transparency by encouraging consumers to anonymously share via an online database the prices they paid for common procedures. For the project -- which is funded by the Knight Foundation -- KQED is working with KPCC and ClearHealthCosts.com, a New York City startup aimed at boosting health care transparency. ClearHealthCosts in 2012 conducted a pilot version of the project with WNYC public radio in New York.
