Project Blog: ClearHealthCosts.com

Building off a platform of reports, databases, blogs and crowdsourcing, Jeanne Pinder and ClearHealthCosts have a mission to be the best online source of health care pricing. After launching a beta site CHC began reaching out to those that really care about the costs of health care: the 20- and 30-something women who are the chief health and wellness officers of their families.

New Partnership with WNYC

Friday, May 03, 2013

ClearHealthCosts.com founder Jeanne Pinder is partnering with WNYC to map both the costs of birth-control pills and mammograms with crowdsourced information in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Check out the maps here: http://wny.cc/104wlrB.

She talked about the new initiative on the May 3 Brian Lehrer Show. The cash or self-pay prices for birth control pills at various pharmacies in the New York region can vary widely, she says in her blog. Costs for one pill, Tri-Sprintec 28, ranged from $9 to $63; another, Yaz-28, ranged from $68 to $112, she reports.

The goal of ClearHealthCosts.com is to add transparency to the cost of every-day medical procedures and jtems.

Pinder says the site has also recently added information from San Francisco and Los Angeles and more cities are on the way.
