Dr. Marilyn Moon joins Dr. Britt Berrett in today’s episode. Dr. Moon is an institute fellow at Washington-based American Institutes for Research. She is the former chair at the Maryland Healthcare Commission, where she headed up a pricing transparency project that ultimately became WearTheCost.org. The website provides consumers in the State of Maryland with cost and quality information related to various elective procedures so that they can make better-informed healthcare decisions. Both passionate advocates for healthcare reform, especially as it relates to consumer information, Moon and Berrett discuss the website, Altarum (AIR’s partner in developing WearTheCost.org) and the direction in which pricing transparency is headed.
