Florida Matters Preview: PriceCheck Stories


Health care costs are a pain. That's why Health News Florida has PriceCheck, an online tool to help you compare costs of common health procedures. This week on Florida Matters we're featuring people who shared their own frustrations and sticker shock!

In this preview, we hear from a Bay Area resident who tried to shop around for a CT scan, but it didn't quite work out.

Sound familiar? Share your story with us or enter your information into the PriceCheck database.

You can hear more stories of billing fiascoes and get tips on how to deal with health care costs this week on Florida Matters. You can also hear another PriceCheck story this Thursday during our regular Health News Florida segment.
