Consumers Can Now Check Medical Prices

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Americans can't control the economy, but they can do a much better job of educating themselves about what they should pay for healthcare. Healthcarebluebook.com, the first national effort to provide free pricing data to consumers launches today, and is designed to give people the information they need to pay fair prices for healthcare.

Americans do price/value comparisons for their homes, cars, vacations and the majority of goods and services they buy. "Why not healthcare?" asks Dr. Jeff Rice, Healthcarebluebook.com founder.

Great follow up to your 1/7 post re: the NCPA study on the need for price competition in healthcare. Hard to achieve price competition without transparency - looks like this company is trying to step in to fill that void. It is about time somebody made healthcare procedure prices available to the public.
