Let’s face it, medical costs are out of control. This is the only sector of the economy where people don’t know what they’ll pay until after they get the procedure or treatment, leaving consumers without the information they deserve. Now you can search for medical providers and hospital prices online like everything else! Hopefully this will return some transparency to the medical industry and highlight the real value of medical care.
I am both a doctor and a mother; I started this site out of my frustration with the pricing of various medical procedures and, specifically, how difficult it was to find those prices. I recently saw a nurse practitioner in the urgent care center in the hospital where I work. I had an infected bug bite. She spent maybe 5 min with me and the bill came to $900! I kept asking everyone how much the visit would cost and no one would tell me. For another example, my daughter was on Accutane and needed monthly blood tests to monitor liver function. I wanted to price out lab tests at various facilities, because insurance did not cover those tests and I didn’t want to pay more than I had to, but the laboratories would not tell me how much they cost. It’s all a secret until you get the bill. If you have to pay them, why can’t you get the price at the time of service? That was when I had the idea for this site, and contacted Hugo.
After Dr. Tasch contacted me, I could instantly relate to her vision. I had gone through a similar situation regarding a medical bill, myself. Although price transparency is relatively new to the healthcare industry, there are other innovative ideas and disruptive technologies being implemented when choosing a medical provider that best fits a patients specific needs. Our vision modernizes the way people will search and find affordable and comprehensive information about healthcare providers to meet their individual requests.
