We are able to provide reliable information about healthcare costs because each year health insurers around the country send us over 2 billion healthcare claim records, which are added to FAIR Health's database of more than 40 billion claim records. We use information from those claims to estimate what providers charge, and what insurers pay, for providing healthcare to patients all across the country. We make this information available to consumers, researchers, businesses and many others.
Our cost estimates are based on claims for medical and dental services paid for by private insurance plans, including the country's largest insurers. Our database includes more than 40 billion private health care claim records and 37 billion Medicare claim records for 10,000 services in all areas of the United States, dating back to 2002. We receive about 2 billion new records each year. These claims represent a large portion of the population in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. FAIR Health uses these powerful data to create a reliable picture of healthcare costs around the country, and locally.
We have consulted with leaders in the healthcare field to make sure that our methodologies follow best practices and our data and tools are the best that they can be.

However, these cost estimates may be useful to you if you have coverage under a government program, but you are getting care that is not covered by that program. For example, Medicare does not cover most dental services. If you have Medicare and you need to see a dentist, you can find out how much you may pay. The information on the site also can help you evaluate a Medicare Advantage plan that requires you to pay more for services outside of the plan's network.

Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) are selected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to administer and process Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B claims. MACs serve as the primary contact between the Medicare Fee-For-Service program and healthcare providers enrolled in the Medicare program, including healthcare providers affiliated with FQHCs. MACs also support and work with FQHCs by enrolling providers in the Medicare program, educating providers on Medicare billing requirements, handling provider reimbursement and auditing institutional provider cost reports, managing the initial claims appeals process, and establishing local coverage determinations (LCDs). Organizations can also use the online Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS) to enroll as an FQHC in Medicare. For more information, please see the CMS overview of Medicare Administrative Contractors. To access a CMS Medicare Administrative Contractor within your state, see the CMS Review Contractor Directory - Interactive Map.
