Early on, in 2003, New Hampshire created one of the nation’s first all-payer claims databases (“APCD”) to collect and disseminate healthcare price information, and many other states were soon to follow. In 2007, price transparency leader New Hampshire took its APCD one step further and launched NHHealthCost.org, a website that provides the median bundled prices for the thirty most common healthcare services. Continuing the trend, New Hampshire’s legislature remains highly active in considering innovative cost containment solutions and expanding price transparency initiatives.
