35 best hospitals for price transparency

The top five hospitals for price transparency are located in Maryland, according to a recent ranking from Money

The report, released Jan. 18, ranked 115 of the nation's top medical facilities on more than 13,500 data points to determine which hospitals are "best." One criteria was price transparency. The publication worked with consulting firm Denniston and the healthcare data team at the nonprofit RAND to determine how accurately a hospital's publicly listed price matches the charge on a patient's bill.
