Protecting Patients

Dr. Bradley Bullock's son needed an x-ray. He took him to a nearby practice and was shocked when the bill came in. He'd been overcharged and instantly knew how his patients felt when they got a surprise bill. Using Healthcare Bluebook, Dr. Bullock has changed his referral patterns and saved his patients thousands of dollars.

Every day, people are referred to specialists by their doctor, not knowing that they have a choice in where they go. Equip yourself with the information you need to make sure you don't overpay.

Guest authors Gautam Mahtani & Matt Cavallo of Care Experience, with contributions from Healthcare Bluebook CEO Jeffrey Rice, MD, discuss the current and future states of transparency in healthcare as well as the barriers that we currently face. Complexity of price, cost and quality are explored in the first of this series of e-books.

"The same surgeon. The same network. Two different facilities just three blocks apart. But, one of them was $1,500 and the other was $15,000 to $25,000!  I was shocked.  Why did one healthcare facility cost ten times more than the other for the same service?"
