Milliman Care Guideline pricing is not transparent to small and medium-sized physician practices who need it the most. Since Milliman Care Guidelines are being used by CMS contractors, large health plans and other payers to determine payment, quality and care outcomes, physician access should be affordable and not difficult. Please be more transparent about your pricing and mindful that physician practices need the tools to move successfully to value-based care and payment.
