The rising cost of healthcare and the lack of transparency around these prices has led to the creation of Clear Health Costs. Mandi Bishop talks with Jeanne Pinder who founded Clear Health Costs to disseminate information about the cost of healthcare services.
Through a pricing survey of providers, database curation, and crowdsourcing, Clear Health Costs is providing information to consumers to help them understand what things cost in healthcare. The company supplies reasonable and comprehensive survey of pricing information so people can go into a provider office and know if they have cheaper alternatives available to them.
Consumer choice will expand, Pinder said, regardless of what happens with the Affordable Care Act, with new payment models, and with the new administration in the White House.
