There’s nothing more frustrating than going to the doctor, being told you’ll owe nothing or have no co-pay for a visit, then having a hefty medical bill arrive in your mail a few weeks or months later. Why is it that we know the price we’re paying for every other service before we buy it except for American healthcare?
I’m proposing a site that functions like Yelp but for medical bills. After a visit, you share what doctor you saw, what insurance you have, what treatment you had, and then what you ended up paying out of pocket. You’re able to see other people’s experiences with doctors and what they paid before you have a visit, and you can pay it forward by helping others estimate their medical bills ahead of time as well.
What do you think?
Is this something you’d find value in?
