Insurance Amounts To Be Posted Online
GRAND RAPIDS — Spectrum Health intends to post on the Web the amounts paid by Medicare, Medicaid and commercial insurers for a list of common hospital procedures, spokesman Bruce Rossman said.
In the near future, the information will be added to a database on the health system’s Web site, www.spectrum-health.org, which has been listing hospital charges for more than a year.
Spectrum Health was the first in Michigan to make such information public.
Rossman said the payment information for commercial insurers will show an average paid by all of them, not payments by individual carrier.
