-too few consumers know the price for their health care

Not only can this lead to frivilous or excessive use it allows to the medical care industry or the medical insurance to go unchallenged. As much as a hospital or doctor might complain there is still alot of wink wink between insurers and providers including horse trading. This why you have a hundred dollar aspirin or a 300-500% markup on supplies already costing thousands of dollars for the providers and not the suppliers.
