Price Transparency: Affordable Medical Care

Healthcare today focuses on cost, quality, and accessibility. In this healthcare era, an independent physician has an edge: that edge is value. Private payors and the government have tasked healthcare providers with trimming costs and making their pricing practices more transparent. As private practices and hospital systems compete, patients need to determine which providers offer quality care at reasonable prices.
