UnitedHealth Group will lead an industry effort for more disclosure of health care costs

The effort, organized by a nonprofit called the Health Care Cost Institute, builds on steps the Obama administration has taken to shed light on prices charged by health care providers. Medicare, the program for the elderly and disabled, released databases last year and this year that showed what it paid hospitals and physicians, over the objections of both industries.
