Health care is a major budget item for most of us. Unfortunately, as health care consumers we’re not in a very good position to be cost-conscious shoppers. We often do not have information about prices, we often do not have the information necessary to evaluate how important a recommended treatment is, and the person making the recommendation is generally not considering cost as a part of the analysis.
Still, given how much we spend on health care, it’s worth making an effort to be sensitive to costs. Emergency physician Jim Dahle recently shared some tips on how to do so.
