“Only three states — New Hampshire, Colorado and Maine — received an A for providing detailed pricing on a variety of procedures through easy-to-use public websites, backed by rich data sources,”

NH HealthCost was developed by the New Hampshire Insurance Department in 2007 to improve the price transparency of health care services in New Hampshire.
People in the Granite State do their research before any important purchase, such as buying a car, they ought to have that same right when it comes to their health care expenses. We created the HealthCost website for them.” said New Hampshire Insurance Commissioner Roger Sevigny.

Of note is that in 2006, Democrats won both congressional seats, re-elected Governor John Lynch, and gained a majority on the Executive Council and in both houses of the legislature for the first time since 1911. It seems some are determined to exemplify the idea that our government can’t do anything right, by making sure our government can’t do anything right by obstructing compromise and promoting hatred and fear of government. We accomplish much more by working together and looking at things with a rational and open mind.

The Report Card on State Price Transparency Laws  is very complimentary to our State which tied for the highest scores.
