Past the Healthy Marketplace Index: Exploring Actual Prices Paid for Specific Services by Metro Area
This volume of the HMI reports prices for a set of 6 common services used by individuals with employer-sponsored insurance and finds striking variation – up to a 25-fold difference in median prices across different metro areas, and up to a 39-fold difference in prices for the exact same service within the same metro area.
Health care spending is the product of how much health care services cost and how often they are used, so to develop a more complete picture of how these drivers affect commercial health care markets, we compared our overall price and use indices both across and within 124 metro areas throughout the United States from 2013 to 2017.
