Southwest Florida medical providers are now providing their patients with access to full quality and price transparency. Recent calls for clearer pricing and physician comparison tools have led 13 providers to join the Save On Medical network of physicians dedicated to making health care price shopping, comparison and online scheduling available to more patients.
Fort Myers, FL (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
Health Care providers in Southwest Florida counties including Manatee, Sarasota, Lee, Collier and Charlotte have joined Save On Medical’s network of physicians dedicated to giving patients access to tools to improve consumerism in health care. Patients can now compare 14 practices in Southwest Florida based on price, quality and convenience.
An addition of over 100 new providers in Florida alone means that Save On Medical has providers covering one of the states with the highest uninsured patient population. There are 3.85 Million uninsured Floridians, which accounts for 25.3% of the state. It was for this reason that Save On Medical focused on developing an extensive provider network in Florida from the beginning.
The ability to price shop and find self-pay pricing is no longer an impossible feat. Price transparency is becoming available to the masses and is not limited to just medical professionals anymore. Newly participating practices include the following; Partners Imaging Center Locations, A1 Imaging locations, Rose Radiology Locations, Bowes Imaging, Advanced Radiology Locations and RX for Imaging, LLC.
