    Note that this comes on top of the recent Oregon study showing Medicaid patients were more likely to visit the ER than the uninsured.

    And I don’t know offhand the specifics of the Massachusetts price transparency law, but as an advocate for real, transparent prices I can tell you I’m skeptical of the ability of laws that try to impose a government-defined version of transparency (see my thoughts here: http://selfpaypatient.com/2013/12/31/when-price-transparency-is-useless-or-worse/)

    In short, real markets can facilitate price transparency, government edict not so much.
