Having reliable information is important any time you pay for an item or service. However, getting good quality and cost information about medical care can be difficult.
The NH Purchasers Group on Health has created the NH Hospital Dashboard to educate the public about the variation in cost and quality of hospital-based health care in NH.
This website provides a snapshot of hospital cost and quality, showing how facilities can vary for the same procedure, with a small sample of services. The New Hampshire Insurance Department's Health Cost website and your own health insurance plans have more comprehensive information. When making decisions about care, consult your health insurance representative and your provider about the best option for you.
