So how many of  you guys here in the U.S. don’t have insurance?  Well, I recently came across a site called PriceDoc.com.  So what is PriceDoc.com?  The best way I can describe it is like Priceline.com but PriceDoc.com is strictly for healthcare procedures.  So going to the doctor without insurance can be a nightmare and well PriceDoc.com isn’t an insurance company what it does provide you is an alternative and cheaper way to access all kinds of healthcare procedures.  Such as:

  1. Dental
  2. Medical
  3. Vision
  4. Cosmetic
  5. Mental Health
  6. Weight Loss

How does it work?

Go to PriceDoc.com and click on the procedure you want.  Enter you city/zip code and look at/compare what comes up in the search results.   What you can do next is:

  1. Get a coupon for the procedure
  2. Request price to get a “cash price” for the procedure
  3. Make an offer which you can use to pay less sort of like an auction, what will you be willing to pay

So don’t go to a doctor’s office directly.  It’s sort of like why you should never book a hotel directly from the hotel!  Why, because you can always find a cheaper rate online or through a travel agent!

Facts about healthcare in America

  1. The United States is the only industrialized country in the world without a universal health insurance system.
  2. There are four times as many health care lobbyists in Washington as there are members of Congress.
  3. Eighteen thousand people die each year because they are uninsured.
  4. Half of all bankruptcies are caused by medical bills. Three-quarters of those filings are people with health insurance.

So if you used this service, write a comment or heard about it, write a comment!  I have not used the service but I have heard good things about it.  If I should lose my job or if I want something that isn’t covered by my insurance company, my first option will mostly likely be PriceDoc.com.
