Going to a doctor or a hospital in metro New Orleans is like shopping blind: most consumers never know the price in advance. By collecting information from you and others, we can help change that.

 

NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune and WVUE Fox 8 News have partnered with ClearHealthCosts, a New York journalism startup, to set up the PriceCheck tool, listing hundreds of prices from health care providers in our region. Check it out, and use your insurer’s Explanation of Benefits, or EOB, form to add your prices. (Information on how to read your EOB form can be found here.)

This is part of our project “Cracking the Code: The real cost of health insurance.” Read our coverage here.
