How do we fix health care?

Looking forward to what hopefully is a Romney presidency. Romney says he wants to repeal Obamacare, so what comes next. One thing I never hear discussed that I would like to see happen is cost accountability. Why is it when we purchase anything else we know what it is going to cost before we buy but not health care. I would like a proposal  that mandates medical personnel inform you of the cost of any procedure or medication so you can make not only make sound medical decisions but sound financial decisions as well. Too often they are perscribing more expensive medicines when cheaper alternatives are available. Hospitals like to pad the bills by parading through everyone possible for consultations even if consultations aren't necessary. We can't reduce costs if we don't know what things cost.
