PricingHealthcare.com Releases "Self-Pay" Prices for Common Procedures at Nearly 400 California Hospitals
Date:11/19/2013

American Fork, Utah (PRWEB) November 19, 2013

Pricing Healthcare revealed substantial cash rate pricing data for hundreds of hospitals Tuesday, including the greater Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and Sacramento areas in California, as well as dozens of additional metro areas across the state. Data for several other states has also been uploaded. Registered users of the site can search the new data for free during the site's extended beta period.

Recent changes to the nation's healthcare system are increasing out-of-pocket costs and uncertainty for patients in large numbers, Deductibles are rising, and out-of-network charges are increasing due to shrinking provider networks.

At the same time, more and more facilities are allowing patients to pay cash upfront at steeply discounted rates. Though a handful of facilities have posted a few of their prices online, this is the first large-scale release of these prices in a systematic, authoritative way.

PricingHealthcare.com is creating a marketplace where consumers can view hard-to-find prices for medical procedures -- for free. The site allows users to compare facility-level rates, helping patients with no insurance or high-deductible plans save hundreds if not thousands of dollars a year on medical bills. Pricing data is obtained by the company through facility price list submissions as well as crowd-sourcing, where individuals can help pull the curtain back on prices that the healthcare industry by and large insists on keeping secret. The company launched their public site in June of this year.
