Through this collaboration with WebMD, members will have access to an enhanced level of transparency tools that provide consumer information such as quality measures and the average cost for a medical procedure at various facilities.

The cost information is based on the Health Plan's actual claims experience, and it will give members information not previously available to them that they can use to make more informed decisions about their care.

Members will access WebMD Digital Health Assistants through a seamless secure member portal, and once there they can view their health history, find providers, research medical conditions, view treatment cost and quality information, and receive custom-tailored recommendations about how they can understand and improve their health.
