Joining us on this week’s episode of America’s Healthcare Challenge – Jeanne Pinder, CEO of Clear Health Costs. Prior to founding ClearHealthCosts.com, Jeanne worked 23 years with the New York Times as the editor and reporter of their human resources and executive department.
ClearHealthCosts.com team of journalists is committed to bringing transparency to the health-care marketplace by telling people prices for medical procedures and items. By revealing prices, their goal is to empower consumers to make informed decisions about the costs of their medical care and coverage. People should be able to know what things cost. If you knew that your MRI could cost $350 or $3,300, maybe you’d choose a different provider. Maybe you’d wonder if your insurance premiums were going up to pay high prices for procedures that could be obtained for less money.
People who know more about the costs of medical care will be better consumers. That’s why they are here. With data from different sources – from their independent reporting, from health-care providers, from participating consumers and from databases – ClearHealthCosts.com is working to answer those questions.
