How do Kentucky hospital prices compare to the rest of the nation?
A Community Health Forum | June 4, 2019
On June 4, 2019, the KHC will host a community forum to share the results of the first national hospital price transparency study in the U.S. that publicly notes commercial inpatient and outpatient hospital prices by hospital name. The study will include those in Kentuckiana and Kentucky. The study, commissioned by Employers’ Forum of Indiana and conducted by RAND Corporation, reports commercial hospital prices paid as a percent of what Medicare paid for the same services, thus making these relative prices comparable across the country. You will also hear the response from an employer who was part of the first-year study in Indiana to discuss how seeing hospital pricing has impacted their benefit strategy. This forum is best suited for those interested in employee health benefits, health plan design, and provider payment.
