You won't want to miss this story on comparing hospital costs!

Posted November 7, 2013


On Monday, November 11, at 5:30pm, make sure you tune into WRAL-TV for a revealing story about comparing hospital costs. The differences for the same procedure at different hospitals is shocking!  Reporter Kelcey Carlson investigated costs on admittance, supply, procedure costs and more.

Click on the link in the box above for a preview of this story and an example of the HUGE cost difference between a specific procedure at different hospitals. You will be amazed.  I look forward to seeing the full story and will remind everyone about it again on Monday.

    Yes, I know all about diffeent hospital prices .... a few years ago, I needed a stress test and the difference in 2 hospitals, all with the exact same procedure, was a big difference. And plus, when you don't have any insurance, the price is very important. That could be the reason the paramedics ask you which hospital you want to go to.
