Healthcare is full of hidden costs, and considering the amount we spend on it, shouldn't doctor's have an upfront listing of all their costs so that you can shop around better?
I've even asked doctors' offices for pricing before a procedure and the answer usually is, "I don't know for sure, but I'm sure that your insurance will cover it." Then, I find out that the insurance doesn't cover it. This happend to my husband, too, and the doctor's office even wrote it down for him and said they were in-network with the plan and that the procedure was covered.... when they weren't! They refused to give us courtesy pricing even though they admitted it was their mistake. If we had been informed accurately, we would've not used that doctor's office.
Who else wants upfront Pre-Visit/Procedure Costs for:
-Patients without insurance
-Patients with insurance (discounted pricing shown within your insurance carrier's web portal)
