"Last year, we began to look very seriously at the transparency question," Jacobs said. "Users can compare three different facilities at once."
Health plan members will be able to compare procedure costs at network providers based on two years of claims that were paid by UPMC. In addition, costs will include all related procedures and how long the treatment will take, start to finish.
