The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Pacific Business Group on Health have released a report on price transparency in healthcare.

The report contains policy solutions for both state and federal levels.

State solutions for healthcare price transparency include prohibiting contractual gag clauses on insurers, creating all-payer claims databases, requiring plans participating in state insurance exchanges to submit claims data and cost calculators and prohibiting any anti-competitive practices.

Federal policy solutions include asserting employers' rights to have and use their own claims data as well as using financial incentives to encourage states to improve price transparency.

The report is available for download on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's website.
