Patients deserve to know real prices and have a trusted, competitive marketplace in healthcare.

 
 

Patients are fed up with healthcare providers, payers, drug companies, and middle players capitalizing on their misfortune. Lack of access to health information causes misdiagnoses, poor quality of care, wasted time and capital, duplications, and increased costs. Unknown and unpredictable costs of healthcare lead to devastating effects on hardworking Americans that last long after they receive health care services.

With real price transparency, we seek to eliminate price gouging and surprise billing. Readily available, real-time, free, mobile access to comparative prices will allow patients to see, know, and choose the best quality of care at the lowest price. Patients will be able to shop in a trusted, competitive marketplace, negotiate when the bill doesn’t match the price, and ultimately better manage their health and financial wealth.

 

Your voice matters. Your story matters.
