Maryland Health Care Commission to Announce “Wear the Cost” Initiative to Increase Transparency and Public Engagement on Health Care Costs and Quality
October 19, 2017
We all know the cost of health care is too high. While there isn’t a silver bullet to lowering costs, well-considered efforts on many fronts can make a difference. One of those fronts is transparency, or making information on the cost and quality of health care more open and accessible to consumers. This concept is at the center of a new initiative known as “Wear the Cost.”
Join the Maryland Health Care Commission for a press conference on October 19, 2017, as state leaders announce this important initiative, and explain how a new website and public awareness campaign will make the cost of care at hospitals across the state available to consumers.
This event will also be live streamed on the Maryland Health Care Commission’s YouTube page.
