“A group of bipartisan state legislators will try to revolutionize the way Coloradans pay for health care. If they get their way, you would be able to access the true cost of what you might have to pay for any one of thousands of procedures, pharmaceuticals, and examinations,” 9 News reports.
“The legislation is, in large part, the brainchild of Colorado businessman David Silverstein. 9 News profiled Silverstein last year when he suggested patients not pay their medical bills until hospitals and other providers provide more information as the how they arrived at the cost.”
“He envisions a day when patients can look up the actual cost of anything in the medical world.”
