Cost Savings Tips and Financial Considerations

More and more providers are performing diagnostics in their own offices. In-office tests may include x-rays, mammography, ultrasound exams and bone density studies. In-office tests are often (but not always) the best value. If your doctor offers you an in-office test, be sure to ask for and compare the price against the Fair Price to make sure you are getting a Fair Price. If the quoted price is significantly more than the Fair Price, ask your doctor to make a referral to another diagnostic testing facility that offers a better value.

Fair Price Information

What does the Fair Price mean?

This is Healthcare Bluebook's recommended price for health care services. The Bluebook price is based on the typical fee that providers in your area accept as payment from insurance companies. This is the price you should have to pay, even if your provider charges more. You can use this price to negotiate with your provider or shop for an in-network provider that charges a Fair Price.

How do I find a Fair Price?

If you have health insurance, you should ask the in-network providers listed in your provider directory what the in-network rate is for this service. Different in-network providers often charge different prices. Call several providers to find one that is willing to accept a Fair Price.

If you do not have health insurance coverage, then you should call providers and ask if they offer discounts for self-pay patients and what their price is for the service.
