PRICE TRANSPARENCY: Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island CEO and President Kim A. Keck, center, says while most insurers have tools to share cost information and pass them along to members and providers, price distributions aren’t widely used because when patients have a health issue that needs to be addressed, they aren’t likely to cost-compare and shop for services.

Ganim; Coastal Medical CEO and President Dr. Alan Kurose; and Rhode Island Foundation CEO and President Neil D. Steinberg. / PBN PHOTO/MIKE SKORSKI
