The new site that could change hospital billing forever
from The Fiscal Times
When the Obama administration recently went public with the first comprehensive data on disparities in hospital billing, it was expected to be a game changer. First, the differences are massive. A pacemaker implant that might cost a patient $36,012 in one hospital might cost $143,124 down the road at a different hospital. There's no clear explanation as to why, and — until now — no simple way to go about finding out if you could get a better deal by shopping around for medical procedures first. That's what makes the new database such a huge deal.
