The healthcare industry is 1/6 of the United States economy and nobody knows how much anything costs. And there has been no way for a healthcare consumer to shop for the best price.
In addition, deductibles are going up every year and even people with healthcare insurance are paying a large portion of their yearly healthcare expense. And that trend is no going away.
Also, there are large areas of the healthcare market that are never or rarely are covered by insurance such as Dentists, Optometry, Homeopathic medicine, and Cosmetic medicine.
For these reasons and more, Cashdoc was launched in 2015. Cashdoc is a healthcare marketplace that patients can turn to to find the lowest priced services in their local market. We provide a hub where patients can connect with great local providers keep the costs down for things like office visits, teeth cleaning even surgery.
And here’s the thing. Cashdoc is also serving the healthcare community by providing them with a vehicle to get in touch with potential patients and show them their services. Healthcare providers like or even preferred cash paying patients because they don’t have to fight insurance companies for months to get preauthorization and then fight again to get paid. And these providers are willing to discount their services to get paid before/at the time of service.And that’s the deal.
So lets cut out the middleman (insurance companies) and work together to create a clear straightforward healthcare system that provides fair pricing for patients and providers alike. That’s Cashdoc’s mission.
