NC Hospitals Making Cost and Quality Information Available to Consumers
North Carolina hospitals are committed to improving access to useful information for anyone making health care decisions. This information should come from all providers involved in your care, from physicians and hospitals to insurance companies. If you have insurance coverage, you will probably be most interested in knowing your potential “out of pocket” costs. Your insurance provider is the best source for this information. Many insurance companies have established cost calculators for their customers, based on a specific insurance plan, that can help you estimate your financial liability. Any search also should include getting information about quality measures, like patient safety and outcomes for hospital and outpatient procedures. You can find more information on cost and quality transparency at www.HealthierTomorrowNC.com.
