Aetna expands online tool for members to see what doctors are being paid

Share this:

AM News writes Aetna has expanded an online tool that allows members in 57 markets across the country to see how much the company has agreed to pay specific physicians for care.

The online tool, which was launched as a pilot in Cincinnati four years ago, now lets members see prices for network doctors in more markets in Rhode Island, upstate New York and New Jersey. It also lists negotiated prices for care delivered by nonphysician health professionals, including chiropractors, audiologists, optometrists and podiatrists.

While supportive of transparency, the American Medical Association and others are concerned that Aetna could be sharing flawed information and that the reimbursement rates in some areas are presented without quality measures.
