Did you know you can shop for 1,600 medical procedures online and compare costs for different locations? The price of medical services can vary by hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars depending on where you go get them. Just like shopping for new tires for your car or a new computer, doing a little research can really pay off.
By using our online Provider Finder® tool, you can compare prices and make choices that may lower how much you pay out-of-pocket . Costs may vary greatly depending on where you go – and the higher cost does not always mean that the quality is better.
Take a look at these examples:
Provider A Cost
Provider B Cost
MRI of the Brain
By choosing the cost-effective provider, you not only can save money on your out-of-pocket costs, but you might earn a cash Member Reward from $25 - $500 depending on the procedure!

There are no forms to fill out – it’s easy. Just follow these steps when a doctor recommends you get a procedure or service:
