Bidding on healthcare services may help consumers get discounts

ZendyHealth and Healthcare Bluebook have partnered to improve price transparency and generate cost-savings for healthcare consumers.

Under the partnership, consumers can use Healthcare Bluebook's price and quality database to research fair prices for medical procedures within their area. Then consumers can use ZendyHealth's platform to bid for medical services for standardized procedures.

ZendyHealth's bidding platform enables patients to obtain discounts ranging from 20-80 percent on healthcare, dental and cosmetic procedures such as MRI scans, teeth whitening, dental implants and Botox injections, among others. After entering criteria for price range and procedure, ZendyHealth matches patients with certified providers in the area.

"Healthcare Bluebook arms consumers with the knowledge they need to ensure fair prices for their healthcare," said Healthcare Bluebook CEO and founder Jeffrey Rice, MD. "With that knowledge, consumers can receive fair priced care from local providers via ZendyHealth.com."
