The International Federation of Health Plans, (iFHP) a network of leading health insurance CEO’s from over 25 countries, has released the 2012 Comparative Price Report. This is the fourth annual survey of prices of the cost of specific medical and products and services, compiled from data collected by iFHP member plans.

The study aims to help plans better understand why health care costs are so much higher in some countries than others. The survey data showed that average US prices were once again the highest of those in the countries surveyed for nearly all of the common services and procedures reviewed.

London-based iFHP CEO Tom Sackville said "We hope the release of this updated report on our price survey will be a step forward in creating a more informed knowledge base for all our member countries, allowing them to better assess the impact of unit prices on the cost of health care."
