I have $500, $500, going, going...
An Arizona doc was spending so much time trying to find low cost procedures for his uninsured or underinsured patients, he started BidonHealth.com.
This site allows you to bid on lab tests and imaging.
For an MRI for migraine, the cost in the Phoenix area would be %1635. The website’s price was $654.
You need to be a little careful of low-cost options, of course. Some older machines produce bad images.
But still, those images are better than a few years ago and docs are used to “interpreting” them.
You might want to check it out.
Heck, we might as well include medical school in HS and let us treat ourselves.
I kid, I kid.
