How much does your healthcare procedure actually cost?

Healthcarecost

A new website called Guroo reveals the average healthcare costs for more than 70 conditions, procedures, and tests in most states of the Union. The figures are based on a massive database of what insurers actually pay – without ‘charges’ that are commonly marked down. Below is a list of the procedures with the national average cost (location filters are available too).
