FAIR Health expands Spanish language capabilities

FAIR Health, a national organization focused on healthcare cost transparency, launched a newly expanded Spanish language website, Fairhealthconsumidor.org.

The website, supported by The New York Community Trust, features a cost lookup tool, which includes information from FAIR Health's database of billions of billed medical and dental claims. The tool generates a cost estimate based on procedure, geographic area, insurance status and in-network discounts, among other factors.

FAIR Health President Robin Gelburd said: "The Hispanic/Latino community is disproportionately uninsured and faces linguistic and cultural barriers to understanding health insurance. We are excited to offer new Spanish-language consumer tools to help them make informed decisions about managing their healthcare and preparing for its costs."
