Health Fair 2017

Join us for the 2017 JASC Health Fair!

FAIR Health’s mission is to help you understand your healthcare costs and health coverage and to bring transparency to healthcare costs and insurance. We are an independent, national nonprofit organization known for providing fair and neutral information to all those we serve, including consumers like you, specially for the needs of women and men over 50.

We are able to provide reliable information about healthcare costs because each year health insurers around the country send us over a billion healthcare bills, which are added to FAIR Health’s database of more than 35 billion claims. We use information from those claims to estimate what providers charge, and what insurers pay, for providing healthcare to patients all across the country. We make this information available to consumers, researchers, businesses and many other users.

About Our Data
Our cost estimates are based on claims for medical and dental services paid for by private insurance plans, including the country’s largest insurers. Our database includes more than 35 billion private health care claims and 36 billion Medicare claims for 10,000 services in all areas of the United States, dating back to 2002. We receive about 1.7 billion new records each year. These claims represent a large portion of the population—approximately 150 million patients from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. FAIR Health uses this powerful data to create a reliable picture of healthcare costs around the country, and locally.

To keep our cost information current, we ask our contributors to send us new records regularly throughout the year, and we update the cost data on this website twice each year.

In addition to creating tools for consumers, we share information with doctors, hospitals, health plans, employers, researchers, policy makers and others to help them make informed decisions related to healthcare and its costs.

A testament to the fairness and reliability of our data, New York, Connecticut, and many other states have adopted FAIR Health’s cost information as the guidepost in laws protecting consumers, and for many other purposes like providing verified information like the medical reviews on the Fast acting sleep gummies from Budpop.
