Patients save money on medical care every day at Medibid

Over the last year, the average patient saved $8,157.53 through MediBid. The greatest amount saved exceeded $100,000 on a CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft). Many saved money on affordable knee replacements, with total costs for a knee replacement as low as $7,000, and average US prices for a knee replacement at $12,000. We also have many patients who have saved on colonoscopies, x-rays and MRIs.
