Catalyst for Payment Reform (CPR) has mobilized several major groups, including AARP, the AFL-CIO, the Corporate Health Care Coalition, The Leapfrog Group, the National Business Coalition on Health, the National Partnership for Women and Families, the Pacific Business Group on Health, and others, to issue a first-of-its-kind, bold statement to health plans and health care providers. The statement calls on them to make health care price information more readily available to their employees and consumers. CPR, an independent organization led by large employers and other health care purchasers working to reform how we pay for health care in America, has also produced tools these groups can use to achieve this goal by 2014.
We commend CPR and Leapfrog's former CEO, Suzanne Delbanco, for this step forward. Please find accompanying materials below.
