Government Technology

This June, the California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) will launch a health transparency website where members can login to see current deductibles, copays and other information. Members will also be able to search for facilities or physicians by quality and cost metrics, said CalPERS Center for Innovation Chief David Cowling.

The site, hosted by Castlight will allow members to be smarter about medical choices, said Cowling. “It’s an innovative product in the sense of bringing transparency to the consumer.”
