Morning Mike talks with Robin Gelburd about healthcare costs

On a recent edition of the RNJ Morning Program, Morning Mike welcomed Robin Gelburd to the program. Robin is the founding president of FAIR Health, an independent, national nonprofit organization with a mission is to help consumers understand their healthcare costs and health coverage, and to bring transparency to healthcare costs and insurance. FAIR Health accomplishes this by gathering information about healthcare costs because each year health insurers around the country supply over a billion healthcare bills, which are added to FAIR Health’s database of more than 24 billion claims. They use this information to estimate what providers charge, and what insurers pay, for providing healthcare to patients all across the country. FAIR Health makes this information available to consumers, researchers, businesses and many other users. To learn more, visit www.fairhealthconsumer.org.
