Introduction

Indiana University has contracted with Castlight Health to provide employees and their adult family members enrolled in IU-sponsored PPO medical plans help with finding in-network medical services based on price and quality of care. Castlight also provides a step-by-step review of past medical spending so members know how much they paid and why.

Why Use Castlight

The healthcare system can be complex and confusing, but Castlight makes it easier to use. Three simple facts will help members get more out of their healthcare benefits:

  1. It pays to compare. For medical services there is a wide range of prices, depending on the location. Out-of-pocket costs for a standard office visit can range from $80 to $250. For other types of visits, lab tests, and x-rays, the range can be even greater. It pays to compare the cost of services to make smart health care decisions. See demo.
  2. Better care doesn’t have to be expensive. Studies show that paying more doesn’t necessarily mean getting better quality care. Prices for healthcare services are not set based on a doctor’s education or ability. Instead, a high price usually means that a doctor belongs to a large group or hospital that was able to command a higher price from the insurance company. 
  3. The member is in charge. The member has the right to choose the care that is right for them. The doctor is the expert to guide medical care, but this same doctor may not realize the importance of cost, quality, or convenience. The member has the right to know all options and then make the choice that works best.  

What Castlight Does

Castlight gives the member information to make smart healthcare decisions. Use the website or call to:

Castlight is personalized to each member. When it shows the price for a service, it is based on the contracted price negotiated by the medical plan, as well as the member’s deductible status.
