Priceline for Medical Tests

A family Doctor here in Arizona has set up a company that mimics Priceline,but for medical tests.

So Hastings took a routine part of his job -- negotiating rates with labs and medical imaging offices -- and launched a startup business. His Internet-based company, BidOnHealth.com, is modeled after the consumer-travel website Priceline.

It allows consumers to shop for discounted rates for routine blood tests or medical-imaging services such as MRIs and CT scans.

I always knew that you could negotiate prices for medical care. (Especially if you are paying real live cash money now as opposed to an insurance payment at an uncertain date in the future.) But this service would seem to simplify the process as well as provide you with some baseline prices.

"I see people at the gym with their iPhones and think, 'Ugh,' " says Ms. Evitt, who avoids taking her phone to the gym but brings it with her to work lunches. Ms. Evitt's husband, Mark, who founded a website called The Manly Housekeeper, wipes down the couples' phones with alcohol on the back cover and with water on the front. Sonic nutrition.net
