Each and everyone one of us price shop whether it’s while grocery shopping, booking a hotel room, etc., but it seems that most people don’t go ‘doctor shopping’. According to Click2Houston, Patricia Thomas, a business woman in Houston, was complaining of shoulder pain and went to a neighborhood clinic. She hadn’t checked the prices beforehand and was later sent a hefty bill of $41,000 after receiving a series of CT scans.
Many people fall into the same trap Patricia Thomas fell into, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. If she had used Save On Medical’s website, she would have paid a mere $410 for a CT scan.
