CIVHC Shop for Care Tool

February 2019




Cost, Quality, Health, Commercial



The Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC) has created an online shopping tool based on information in the Colorado All Payer Claims Database (CO APCD). The “Shop for Care” tool helps consumers across the state locate facilities with the lowest price and best patient experience ratings, and supports reducing health care spending. Information available through the tool includes prices for new x-ray imaging services and updates to currently available services like CT scans and MRIs. It also provides new “episode” prices for hospital and outpatient procedures including knee and hip replacement, births, cataract surgery and colonoscopies.
