Spring 2024 update to member cost tool data
December 5, 2023

We’re conducting our biannual update of our member cost estimation tools based on care you rendered from May 1, 2022 – April 30, 2023, and paid through June 30, 2022 under your contracted rates, including associated care rendered by other providers.

About the Spring 2024 update

Our spring 2024 release will be earlier than in past years because we did not publish an update this fall. This update will include data for:

  • providers who may be new to cost estimation tool reporting, and
  • existing providers who may now have data for treatment categories for which they did not previously meet minimum denominator requirements.

The tool encourages our members to consult with their clinicians in making decisions about where to seek care. Members may also refer to our quality comparison resources and listings of our Blue Distinction Centers to help select a site of service based on both quality and cost.

This data set is not the same as the data being used to fulfill the requirements of the Transparency in Coverage rule.

You can view an explanation of our methodology with the included treatment categories and codes. Simply log in, go to Quality & Performance>Transparency & Product Design>Quality Transparency, and click Member Cost Estimation Tools Methodology and Code List. You can obtain a copy of your data from your Network Manager (log in and click on Contacts & Sites at the top of this page).
