Price transparency comes to area hospitals

Posting prices for procedures done at hospitals is nothing new for Door County Medical Center. It is a part of a new federal law designed to help patients become better consumers.  Door County Medical Center started to add the information to their Web site as more patients began to request it over the last four to five years. It even had a link to a different Web site allowing patients to comparison shop between other facilities. The only change needed was to publish the prices in a machine-readable format. Since published prices are before insurance kicks in, Patient Financial Services Manager Tiffany Huston encourages people to call if they have questions.

Huston emphasized Door County Medical Center has services available to patients who need to get insurance or set up a payment plan to afford their care. Prices are listed under the Billing and Payments section on Door County Medical Center’s Web site.
