New HCCI Data Access and Pricing Model!
Today, HCCI announces a major step to expand access to its data in order to enable more research on the trends in health care costs and spending among commercially-insured populations. In light of the ongoing debate around policy options to improve the American health care system, HCCI believes that broadening the pool of researchers who can access HCCI data will support a more informed conversation.
As of January 2018, HCCI’s new data access and pricing model will allow access to any researcher at any university in the United States.

HCCI analyzed average prices of 242 standardized groupings of diagnostic and procedure codes for health care services, or “care bundles”.
