Pricing Healthcare is an independent, online marketplace for direct-pay healthcare, open to all providers and facilities of any type, and accessible
to individuals and employers anywhere in the world.
Healthcare providers can promote themselves on our site, their brand, quality ratings, their services and prices, and anything else they want patients
to know about. We offer facilities a dedicated home page and child pages, hosted on our site, free of advertisements, with a link to the
provider's website, and with provider contact information that's clearly visible.
Patients, employers, and brokers can easily find facilities by location, facility type, or services offered, with rates typically much lower
than insured rates. We do not provide rough calculations or estimates. Prices on our site are kept up-to-date and honored
by the facilities listing them. They are available for anyone willing to pay direct, regardless of place of residence, employment, or
insurance coverage. Online information, including pricing, can be accessed freely, whether in the U.S. or abroad. Additional services,
including more detailed price comparison reports, are available for employers and their purchasing agents for a small fee or on a subscription basis.
We are a privately funded company, founded and incorporated in 2012, with headquarters in the greater Salt Lake City area in Utah.
We are not affiliated with any healthcare or insurance organization or government entity. Access to our site
is free. Access to registered user content is restricted to those in the United States and its territories.
We have a talented team with senior-level experience in medical payment systems, software development, web design, usability design,
project management, sales & marketing, and legal counsel. Many of them have held leadership roles on very large, enterprise-level projects at some of
the biggest companies in America.
