Patients Want to Price-Shop for Care, But Online Tools Unreliable
Kaiser Health NewsLink to more items from this source
Nov. 30, 2015
"It's unclear how common these inaccuracies with online estimators are, but the tools are becoming more popular, as patients shoulder a bigger share of the cost of their medical care. Outside companies are developing the online calculators, and most insurers offer them.... Some of the estimators reflect an aggregate range of possible costs; others are based on historic pricing, or claims data from varying sources. Many ... are limited in the type of procedures they include."
