A health insurer says it will be making physician-specific price and quality information in more communities.

Aetna Inc., Hartford, says it is expanding its health care transparency program to include Connecticut; Massachusetts; Fort Myers, Fla.; Colorado; Raleigh/Durham, NC; Ohio; Pittsburgh; and West Virginia.

The physician price tool offers physician-specific pricing for a few dozen common services and procedures,

The quality tool gives physician-specific information about adverse events, 30-day hospital re-admit rates, overall efficiency in use of medical services, and volume of Aetna members treated.

The transparency program also includes facility-specific costs and managing physician costs for about 30 common medical procedures.

Aetna also is giving all consumers the ability to “test drive” the health shopping information tools on its public Web site.
