The Phase 1 Implementation Plan for the Cost Transparency Healthcare Payments Program is  now available.

The 2018 Budget Act included a one-time appropriation for OSHPD to develop and administer a statewide Healthcare Cost Transparency Database, often referred to as an All Payer Claims Database or APCD. The database is intended to support greater transparency regarding healthcare costs. The information will be used to inform policy decisions regarding the provision of quality health care, and to reduce disparities and healthcare costs.
