Although CIVHC has the data from managed behavioral health organizations (MBHOs), it's encounter data and not in the warehouse with other all payer claims, said Sonn.
Plans are for Colorado consumers to have a price comparison available later this year for common medical procedures, said Jonathan Mathieu, director of data and research for CIVHC.
CIVHC has kept the behavioral health community in the loop, said Sonn.
CIVHC has five work groups that have been actively working on recommendations.
The work groups reported well developed analysis and ideas about implementing effective approaches, concepts, and systems for consuming, delivering and taking responsibility for health at the recent CIVHC meeting.
The members of CIVHC are diverse including about 25 people from around the State with a variety of health care, consumer, legal, business, governmental and leadership backgrounds.
