Mercy Health System posts costs for common procedures
Mercy Health System is making it easy for patients to compare costs on common procedures with other providers.
Mercy Vice President of Community Advocacy Rich Gruber says estimates are now posted on-line as part of a new health care transparency law. The Wisconsin Hospital Association says the law requires providers to have a list on hand of the 75 most common reasons for hospitalization and outpatient procedures.
Gruber says costs for common procedures can easily be accessed www.wipricepoint.org.
