Healthcare Bluebook can help you find high-quality medical care at the best cost. Plus for some procedures you may earn cash rewards $$ for using a Fair Price Provider/Facility.
By using Healthcare Bluebook, you may save hundreds or even thousands of dollars on care by having your doctor perform tests and services at cost effective facilities.
Let’s get started!
Log onto the PCS Healthcare Bluebook website at www.healthcarebluebook.com/cc/pcsb to look up a Fair Price. Compare provider/facility prices and find the best value in your area.
As long as I stay in network, I get the best price, right?
Wrong. In-network prices can vary by hundreds or thousands of dollars. For example, if your primary care physician says you need an arm x-ray, in-network pricing can vary by hundreds or thousands of dollars.
When my doctor orders a test for me, I have to go where I am referred.
Wrong. There are procedures that can be performed in different locations, with no loss in quality, for a much lower cost. These are routine procedures like MRIs, X-rays, colonoscopies and CT Scans.
Depending on the location, an MRI can cost as little as $600 or as much as $5000+
- Wouldn’t you drive a few miles to save a few thousand dollars? You have a choice where you get care - make sure you’re getting the best value.
How do I get a referral to a Fair Price™ facility?
Download the Healthcare Bluebook mobile app and you can shop for prices and locations while you are with your doctor. Together, you can decide which location fits both your budget and your medical situation.
