Fair Health is a non-profit organization developed in large part to the efforts of then-New York State Attorney General, Andrew Cuomo (now Governor of N.Y.). Cuomo, who was investigating how out-of-network claims were being priced, settled with the various insurance companies out of court. From that settlement, the insurance companies agreed to establish a non-profit organization that would feature an independent database of healthcare charge information.
Fair Health uses networking infrastructure from Brocade, as well as other software and hardware solutions, which integrates the capabilities with algorithms and methodologies acquired from the scientific and research community.
