Transparency, cost containment sought in Medicare-based pricing technique

Through reference-based pricing, employers set prices for a self-funded insurance plan using Medicare prices as a benchmarking tool. Employers agree to pay providers a certain percentage on top of the average Medicare rate — usually in the range of 125%-200%. For many employers, this means leaving behind their carrier and networks.
