Oakland Physicians Support Healthcare Price Transparency
Date:10/24/2013

Oakland, California (PRWEB) October 24, 2013

Patients in Oakland and surrounding areas can now use http://www.SaveOnMedical.com to find affordable medical procedures. Instead of foregoing important care because of price concerns, anyone can now log on and find the self-pay prices for various procedures, and it’s a lot less expensive than many think.

The Kaiser Family Foundation recently reported, “one in five [Californians] say they’ve never had health insurance.” This is a major concern as most uninsured patients go without preventive or screening services because they assume it’s an unnecessary expense.

Save On Medical and other organizations, like Catalyst for Payment Reform, want to show Oakland patients that quality healthcare services do not need to drain your bank account. There are plenty of high quality doctors that want to help for a lower price. With price and quality transparency, patients can understand their options and easily shop around for healthcare.

California may be tied for 4th as the state with the highest uninsured population (as per Kaiser’s 2011 data), but that doesn’t have to mean 4th most unhealthy population. Uninsured individuals can still stay healthy, if they have the correct resources.

About Save On Medical
Save On Medical is a website for patients shopping for and scheduling affordable radiology procedures. Patients can compare physicians based on price, quality and convenience. Save On Medical allows for price and quality transparency in the health care market, helping patients make smart consumer-driven healthcare decisions. Just like travel websites like Hotels.com and Travelocity, Save On Medical provides patients with a list of options, and the ability to pay for medical procedures at a fraction of the price.
