As patients continue to shoulder a greater portion of their health costs, self-pay consumers will travel across county-lines or state-lines for significant savings. Deloitte Consulting recently reported that over $100 BB is spent annually on out-of-pocket health care costs in the US - by US consumers.

With declining insurance reimbursements and rising overhead, many healthcare providers are offering cash-friendly prices at 60% to 80% less than their usual and customary fees commonly billed to insurance companies.

In our effort to connect self-pay patients with cash-friendly surgeons, we suggest Surgeo.com, an online service that simplifies access to peer-credentialed surgeons offering flat-rate surgery packages.

Surgeo.com enables visitors to compare packages by surgeon, cost, and location.
