Instead of going through insurance and receiving twenty bills later, three doctors in Oklahoma are giving you the flat price upfront.

A surgery center in Oklahoma, which is run by three doctors, has started a trend: prices beforehand, no insurance accepted. There's no hidden costs or "surprises," but payment is required up front.

As more and more patients find themselves paying more and more out of pocket, it is clear that something must change. We believe that a very different approach is necessary, one involving transparent and direct pricing.

Transparent, direct, package pricing means the patient knows exactly what the cost of the service will be upfront.

Frankly, we just had fun pricing out surgeries. Looks like would actually cost LESS for Pat to fly down and get his hernia surgery done there, rather than apply it to our deductible HERE. Kudos to these guys for actually doing something about the problem!
