PA hospital aims to help uninsured by listing prices

CBS Pittsburgh, February 5, 2014

When you go to a drive through for fast food, you know exactly what it will cost you at the next window. But right now, if you're in need of a hospital outpatient procedure, it's like a fancy restaurant with no prices on the menu. The Heritage Valley Health System plans to change that. "Hospitals and health care have become more retail," said Dan Murphy with Heritage Valley Health System. With hospitals in Sewickley and Beaver, heritage valley will begin posting prices for 25 common outpatient procedures – doctors' costs would be extra.
