CPR’s Top 5 Free Resources

December 23, 2019

CPR’s mission is to help employers and other health care purchasers get better value for their health care dollar. While we provide the bulk of our resources to employers and health care purchasers for free,* we charge non-purchasers for the same resources. All money from sales helps keep our small non-profit agile enough to anticipate and coordinate the continuously evolving needs of purchasers.

If the paywall presents an obstacle for you to access our library of tools and resources, don’t fret! There is a lot of content on our site that is free to anyone. We hope this round-up of the most popular FREE downloads from 2019 will be of use to you.

Top 5 Free Resources from 2019
