Imagine buying a car without being able to compare its features or consumer satisfaction ratings compared to other brands. Now imagine having no idea what the car will cost you until you receive a bill in the mail.
CO APCD data can allow you to find the best care at the lowest price. This site includes reports that give you an estimate of the amount that a hospital, and eventually a surgery center, physician, or other health care professional receives for its services, and how much you will have to pay out of pocket for that service.
The CO APCD is designed to help Coloradans make informed decisions about their health care. Similar to how you shop for other products and services, the CO APCD can let you compare hospital and physicians to find high value services and decide how to spend your health care dollar.
