Commentary: Ask your health care provider for the cash price | Nvdaily | nvdaily.com

A friend shared a story he heard recently, over eggs and toast at a local eatery. A citizen needed an MRI. He asked the price, and the regional hospital quoted him $1,500. He looked concerned, mentioned that was expensive, and the provider offered that the cash price was $500. Curiously, that $500 is exactly what his insurance plan would have him pay. For a lot of people, this looks like a wash.
