This tip is from Reader Jen! She advises calling around to different facilities before having a medical procedure done to compare costs. She learned this when her daughter needed tubes in her ears. To have it done at the hospital would’ve cost $5600. At the outpatient surgery center (next to the hospital, no less!) it was less than $3000! That’s a BIG difference! And the same doctor would perform the procedure no matter what facility she chose!
Have you ever saved big on medical costs? How did you do it?
