Hospitals and insurers are now required to share their prices and negotiated rates with the public. The problem? Most of the data is inaccessible to patients.
Marcus Dorstel, Vice President of Operations at Turquoise Health, shares how his team has sifted through the data to create a tool patients can use to shop for health care services, compare prices, and find quality care. Plus, the shocking price discoveries they made in the process.
Terry and Dr. Bob also discuss how price transparency can help employers create health plan benefits that protect their employee’s physical and financial health.
We also hear from Melissa Moya, the founder and executive director of Lyme Fight Foundation, on her initial Lyme diagnosis and following treatment journey.
