Valley Baptist Medical Center taps MDsave for price transparency services

Valley Baptist Medical Center-Harlingen (Texas) and Valley Baptist Medical Center-Brownsville (Texas) have partnered with MDsave to help uninsured patients research and understand out-of-pocket expenses for healthcare services.

The MDsave platform allows patients to geographically search by procedure, provider, specialty or ailment, and compare the pricing of services across locations. Patients can then purchase the service at a reduced cost through the MDsave website.

"In today's marketplace, healthcare can be confusing and expensive, especially for consumers who are uninsured or who must pay large out-of-pocket amounts," Valley Baptist Health System CEO Manny Vela said in a prepared statement. "This service can help these patients access the same quality healthcare they have come to expect at our hospital at a lower cost."
