Considering The Cost of Health Care

Talking to your doctor about the cost of health care can feel like a touchy subject. But it shouldn’t be. Start a conversation with your doctor. Ask questions.

Health care costs can vary wildly. The cost of a procedure at a medical facility may be much higher (or lower) than the medical facility down the street.

How can you know before you make an appointment?

Alliance enrollees can compare cost and quality information on in-network choices with Find a Doctor. Just go to and click on the Find a Doctor button.
