Georgia flunks health care reporting

Most states don't do much better

Georgia scored an "F" on its reporting of health care costs, according to a report released this week.

We're one of 29 states that flunked on the health care price transparency report from the Catalyst for Payment Reform, a nonprofit group that works to improve how businesses and individuals pay for health care.

The report takes a look at how well state laws give people information about the average or expected cost of health services.

We shouldn't feel too bad. Only two states–Massachusetts and New Hampshire–earned an "A." Only 12 states earned a "B" or "C." Maybe they should've graded on the curve.
