HealthCost provides information on the price of medical care in New Hampshire by insurance plan and by procedure. It also provides an estimate for uninsured patients. Through HealthCost, New Hampshire residents can compare prices from health care providers throughout the state on more than two dozen medical procedures, including MRIs, CT scans, ultrasounds, and X-rays. The information is derived from claims data collected from New Hampshire's health insurers and stored as a part of the Comprehensive Health Care Information System (NHCHIS), and the data on the HealthCost website will be updated quarterly. More information about the NHCHIS can be found here: https://nhchis.com.
This website serves as a resource to help you make informed decisions about purchasing health care services. The FAQs section of this website provides information on the site's methodologies as well as information on health insurance.
