WLRN's Topical Currents looks at Health News Florida’s PriceCheck project . . .  a community-created guide to health care costs.

Patients can go to Health News Florida's website and enter medical bill or insurance company “explanation of benefit” details.  An easily accessed data-base is thus developed, which shows an assortment of procedure prices.

We’ll learn more about PriceCheck from WLRN/Miami Herald health care policy reporter Sammy Mack.
