Company Summary

The problem: Consumers don’t know what things cost in health care. The solution: We are building the best online source of pricing in health care. This is the last big remaining opaque marketplace, opaque as airline tickets, car sales, real estate once were. But it must change. Price information is increasingly in demand, and disparities are huge: an MRI for $350 or $3,500? A blood test for $16 or $117? We're here to help.
