Clear Choices

Clear Choices: A Movement for Informed Healthcare is a new consumer-industry campaign, founded by the Council for Affordable Health Coverage, designed to promote health care transparency. The campaign will advance solutions that empower consumers to make better health choices, leading to a more robust, more competitive and less costly health care system.

What We Believe:

We believe health care transparency- on price, quality and safety- can help reduce health costs and improve health outcomes by empowering consumers to make better health choices. Unfortunately, current federal and state efforts are not effectively leveraging the latest technology and available data to achieve these goals. To achieve this, Clear Choices believes there should be:

  • Better tools for consumers and employers to make informed decisions;
  • More data in the hands of more experts to power consumer tools; and
  • More competitive markets where consumers can use comparative tools.
