As a patient, would you like to know how much a medical procedure will cost you before you get it?
As a buyer of insurance, would you like to know how the physicians in one health plan's network compare on cost and quality measures with those in another?
As a Colorado taxpayer, would you like to know how new initiatives from Medicaid, the Child Health Plan Plus and public health initiatives are affecting health outcomes and costs?
If you answered any of these questions “yes,” then you will welcome the creation of Colorado's All Payer Claims Database (APCD). This statewide warehouse will aggregate de-identified claims data from all private insurance providers in Colorado, as well as Medicaid and Medicare, to provide comprehensive pictures of health care costs and utilization in our state.
