What did your MRI or CT Scan cost? WHYY’s PriceCheck wants to know


    WHYY’s PriceCheck project is well underway, with more than 200 community entries featured in our searchable, crowdsourced database. That includes everything from mammograms to sleep tests. Try out a search yourself, typing in a zip code and procedure.

    Many of you have reached out to us directly about the project and about your health care experiences. Thank you! Your insight is helping shape our reporting. The more entries we receive, the more data we have to work with, and the more insight we can glean from all of this.

    Our first segments have focused on what we’re learning about the oh-so-beloved colonoscopy procedure and its many costs. Stay tuned for more on that, as insurers and providers weigh in as well.

    Next up, we want to hear about what you were charged and paid for imaging procedures, like MRIs and CT-Scans.

    We’ve also been hearing from many of you with questions about how to share billing information in the PriceCheck system, and so we’ve developed an updated explainer.

    If you’re still stumped or would like to share a story, don’t hesitate to contact us directly at pricecheck@whyy.org.
