The Healthy Marketplace Index measures the economic performance of health care markets across the country. It gives local policymakers, employers, and providers a benchmark as they work to improve health care value and affordability.

Explore Local Prices Using the Map:

  • See how health care prices for inpatient, outpatient, and physician services in your local market stack up against a national average
  • Understand how local prices for inpatient, outpatient, and physician services have changed over time
  • Compare prices in your market to prices in other communities across the country

A price index greater than 1.0 indicates higher-than-average prices. A price index less than 1.0 indicates lower-than-average prices.
