Price Transparency an Issue for California Doctor Group
KCET's "Life & Times" on Tuesday is scheduled to include a discussion with Robert Blackman of HealthCare Partners Medical Group, which lists on its Web site the prices of some medical procedures ("Life & Times" Web site, 6/12).
Southern California-based HealthCare Partners recently became one of the first and largest health care organizations in the country to post procedure prices online (California Healthline, 5/29).
A broadcast schedule is available online.
Audio and a transcript of the report will be available on the program's Web site after the broadcast.
