The 32BJ Health Fund, a provider of high-quality and affordable healthcare for their participants and families, released a report on the cost of healthcare. Through an in-depth analysis of their claims data and other publicly available information, the Fund determined that the leading driver of these costs is the escalating price of hospital care, especially in the New York City market.
In this report, they identify where hospital prices are highest and how they impact their participants. Through a study of their own claims data, and the broader research literature, they address some of the most common misconceptions about hospital prices and identify policy interventions that have proved effective in various locations around the country.
