Comparing cost of care

Comparing cost of care

Wildly different prices for the same medical procedures are reported across the nation: a knee MRI in Seattle can cost anywhere from $460 to $2,470; a hip replacement in New York runs $13,137 at Coney Island Hospital, or $38,588 at Lenox Hill. And those numbers don’t even take into account differences in quality of care. This month, UnitedHealthcare expanded the availability of its myHealthcare Cost Estimator to nearly all of its employer-sponsored health care plans. The tool, which is free to employers and plan participants, allows for comparison shopping of health care services online and through the Health4Me app.
