Our mission is to help healthcare consumers find the best possible healthcare at the most reasonable price. We don’t like to use the word “consumers” when it comes to healthcare, but we are realistic and understand that in today’s world healthcare is a marketplace. So we use that understanding to create a web-based marketplace, My Health and Money, where people like you, your family and friends can find the healthcare they need at a competitive price, and keep out-of-pocket costs under control.
Even when you have insurance, you are likely to have out-of-pocket costs, and those costs are going up. Whether it’s a hospital-based procedure, a diagnostic test, prescription drugs, or even hearing or vision care, you’re likely to have bills that your insurance won’t cover.
That’s where My Health and Money steps in with:
We know there are times when you need more than just data. That’s why offerings on My Health and Money include:
We gather costs from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). These are a good indication of what you should expect, but prices constantly change. For diagnostic tests, call ahead to get the cost before scheduling your appointment. The costs of hospital procedures also fluctuate and the information from CMS reflect cost from the time the survey information was gathered. They also may not include all additional hospital services associated with the procedure. However, you can use these prices to make comparisons.
Remember: Cost also needs to be weighed with quality. Refer to the Patient Survey results (see below) and talk with your doctor before making a final decision.
We also draw on Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) patient experience surveys for our patient survey reports. These surveys focus on critical aspects of healthcare (e.g. How did your nurses communicate?) rather than amenities (e.g. “free wi-fi”).
We talked with a lot of people before we created this website and we found that some thought they’d use it all the time, and others thought just now and then. So we offer choices:
