The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration is planning to make updated cost information about care at local hospitals available on the FloridaHealthPriceFinder website although no date has been set for the launch, writes The News Service of Florida. The state initially said it wanted to make the site available to the public in June but has held off. The hospital-specific “cost” information will be based on claims data Florida insurers are required to submit to the state. The state signed a contract with Health Care Cost Institute, or HCCI, to administer the database and to develop a consumer-friendly website.
