Understanding health-care costs is difficult. A lot of that has to do with how pricing and billing work: There’s no standard rate for a night in a hospital, nor is there an Expedia to compare accommodations’ cost and quality. And that leaves most Americans not confidentI in their ability to shop for health care based on cost or quality.
