Cash Prices for Medical Care, Actual Prices

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.

The bottom line is that the best way to save on medical care is through transparency and competition. Allowing the free market to work means affordable medical care.
