How much does an MRI cost?

Sorry, wrong code

I read a story on Kaiser Health News this morning about the author’s struggle to be a responsible and informed health care consumer: How much for an MRI?

I can completely relate!

I had a similar experience with a heart ultrasound two years ago. It’s a cycle of frustration: You can’t get a price without a procedure code, but you can’t get the correct code until after the procedure is done. Classic.

Health care costs have long been kept hidden from the public—until after you get the bill.

And here’s a funny video put out by the blog What’s the Real Cost? What if shopping for groceries was like shopping for health care?
