Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Colorado on Monday launched an online tool (Anthem Care Comparison) that faciliates comparison shopping by its members. It provides estimates of costs of 39 medical procedures at hospitals, surgery centers or radiology centers. Information also is included on routine office visits. The data is specific to individual facilities, allowing members to compare the difference in costs between hospitals, for instance. The cost information will be updated quarterly.
