An article in the New York Times encourages consumers to shop around to find the best prices for health care services. The article recommends four steps consumers should take to comparison shop for health care:

  • Check to find out if your health insurer offers tools for members
  • Use tools like PriceDoc.com, HealthcareBlueBook.com and Outofpocket.com to look-up prices
  • Research state transparency initiatives to look-up hospital prices in your state
  • Call the provider to find out specific price information
