Most marketplaces thrive with transparency and competition, and we believe that a lack of transparency in medical care has resulted in higher prices. Most of the time the cost of medical care is determined after the care is received, and you can’t negotiate prices properly because there is no way to give back the medical care if you’re unhappy with the price. We believe this inability to negotiate is why health care is now the single largest component of the American economy. We believe the only solution is to get the price in advance and shop for care based on value in medicine.
