Steve Scher talks with Sean Sullivan, a professor at the University of Washington School of Pharmacy, about the importance of transparency for health care costs and what individuals can do to find out the expense of their health services.

Healthcare Bluebook is a website that aggregates health care prices and reports them by service and provider.

Correction 6/9/2014: A previous web version of this story incorrectly stated where Sullivan works. HeĀ  is a professor in the School of Pharmacy.
