San Diego, CA. (February 23, 2022) – Turquoise Health, a healthcare tech platform focused on simplifying healthcare reimbursement through pricing transparency, announces today that Copper Queen is one of the first Turquoise Verified providers on its platform. Turquoise Verified is a free program that highlights pioneering providers who are going beyond the Hospital Price Transparency Final Rule. Providers that become verified will receive a checkmark within their profile page allowing patients and consumers to quickly navigate compliant locations in their areas for healthcare services.
“We need a spotlight on providers, like Copper Queen, that are going beyond last year’s mandate and setting the standard for pricing transparency,” said Joe Wisniewski, the Head of Platform Growth at Turquoise Health.
Turquoise Verified is that spotlight. The overall platform works to solve the problem of curating over 175 million records of never-before-seen provider rates that were released post January 2021 hospital price transparency legislation.Turquoise Health simplifies the transaction process of healthcare so that patients can understand the total cost upfront, while also working with providers and payers who recognize the potential for transparency in transforming the market. The Turquoise Verified program allows for providers to utilize the Company’s expertise in order to make their data and pricing files proactively useful for patients and consumers.
Copper Queen Hospital, located in Bisbee, AZ, is at the forefront of price transparency compared to other local and national providers. The hospital has gone above and beyond to make its data and pricing easy to use and understand for patients. Cochise County is located in the southeastern corner of Arizona in Bisbee, with neighboring communities of Sierra Vista and Benson and is on average 58.3% more affordable than the nearest five providers geographically.
