Source: Castlight Health. The primary source of data used for this analysis is medical claims data. Castlight augments this data with
other data including: publicly available data, provider information, and actual provider rate sheets that list the negotiated price between
a provider and an insurer. Castlight then applies proprietary algorithms to obtain the provider prices used for this analysis.
Prices are defined as the employee cost-sharing plus the amount paid by the employer.
