In South Florida, Nation Healthcare Costs Often Shrouded In Secrecy

Miami, FL, United States - At a hearing to discuss the rising costs of healthcare benefits for Miami-Dade County employees this year, a labor union consultant raised his hand to ask what seemed like a basic question. Could the committee charged with reducing Miami-Dade labor's healthcare expenses look at the spreadsheet showing the rates that the county pays local hospitals and doctors for medical services to employees? "We really need to understand where the money is being spent in order to be insightful about benefit design changes," said Duane Fitch, a healthcare consultant for SEIU Local'91, which represents physicians and nurses at the county-owned Jackson Health System.

Healthcare Prices: Many Moving Parts Veiled By Confidentiality Agreements

Washington, DC, United States - The average Medicare payment for a knee replacement at a South Florida medical center in 2012 ranged from a low of $9,700 at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale to a high of $24,000 at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami even though Holy Cross's average charge of $63,000 was about $2,000 higher than Jackson's. Private commercial insurers do not publish their payments like Medicare does, but healthcare experts say the prices they pay hospitals for the same procedure can vary just as much and the reason often depends on more than just the hospital where the knee replacement was performed.
