HEALTH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
In 2004, the President signed an Executive Order to avoid medical mistakes, reduce healthcare costs, and increase transparency of America's healthcare system through the use of Health Information Technology (HIT). Following the Executive Order, the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, was signed into law in 2009 to promote the nation-wide adoption and meaningful use of HIT.
HIT, allows patients, healthcare providers, and health plans to share information securely, reducing costs by avoiding duplicate procedures and manual transactions. Most importantly, HIT reduces medical errors; for instance, emergency care medical decisions made without complete and accurate health information.
HIT can also help you find appropriate health information to aid you and your doctor in making appropriate clinical decisions regarding your care. Since privacy and security considerations are vitally important, safeguards have been established to keep your records safe from inappropriate disclosure.

You know exactly what you are going to pay, because you know exactly what your copays will be. Your health plan may include preferred/non-preferred cost sharing depending on where you have a service or procedure. You pay a set copay either way, but access to healthcare cost information may help you and your family understand the difference in what you pay.
