Health systems with the best, worst price transparency scores per Turquoise Health

Turquoise Health released a price transparency report Oct. 18 that rates hospitals and health systems on how well they are following a federal requirement to publish their negotiated rates with private insurers.

The health systems were rated on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the most transparent based on seven different subcategories, including how many of their hospitals have posted a machine-readable pricing file with negotiated, cash and list rates.

Turquoise Health analyzed nearly 5,000 hospitals that have posted a machine-readable file with pricing information.

These 104 health systems scored a 5, according to data Turquoise Health shared with Becker's:
