What is health care transparency?

Many people are surprised to learn that in health care, there is no correlation between cost and quality. Prices for medical services can vary greatly - even for the same procedure, in the same area, within the same network. Quality and outcomes can vary just as greatly, with no relationship to price. The only way to know whether you're getting good care at a reasonable price is to see the data. Castlight provides employees with the information they need about cost and quality to choose the best care at the best price.

The benefits of health care transparency

Employers  Health care transparency can help you improve the health care your employees receive, while enabling you to control skyrocketing medical costs. It also leads to more engaged, activated employees.

Employees  With more large employers now offering high-deductible health plans, consumers are faced with increasingly large out-of-pocket expenses. Access to price and quality information helps employees save money. It also empowers them to get the best care.

Providers  Greater transparency means that high-quality health care providers will receive the recognition they deserve for the excellent care they deliver.
