Mission

Healthcare pricing has become extremely variable due to lack of price transparency and competition. Clinic Price Check is a social venture whose mission is to increase healthcare price transparency. We do not partner with health providers or insurers and provide unbiased estimations of cost at health providers.

On January 1, 2019, hospitals were required to post their pricing lists. In July of this year, the Trump Administration proposed a new rule that would require the posting of insurer prices.

We are not a health provider or funded by any health provider. As hospitals are unable to guarantee the accuracy of these prices, we also cannot guarantee the accuracy of these prices.
