Oklahoma Surgery Center takes ‘radical’ step of posting prices online
From The Journal Record:
As medical director of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma, Keith Smith spends much of his time talking with potential patients concerned about the cost of a needed medical procedure. Many of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma’s patients do not have health insurance and are seeking the best price for their surgery.
“People shop prices,” he said.
So early this year Smith and his partners at the physician-owned facility at 9500 N. Broadway Extension in Oklahoma City decided to make their prices more accessible – the prices for various procedures at the Surgery Center of Oklahoma were posted online.
