I came across a new website this morning, geared towards helping consumers save on health care. Health Savings News was launched earlier this month and includes tips and articles on topics like medical credit cards, the new Medicare plan and health savings accounts, just to name a few.
The editors also compile their favorite articles, tips and websites each week to help you find the best of everything health care on the web. This week’s web site of the week is Pillbot.com, which allows consumers to shop online for the best-priced prescription drugs–without entering medical history or other personal information.
While Health Savings News is still in its infancy, it contains some pretty good information. I learned a little something myself about requesting an itemized bill from hospitals.
Check it out and let me know if you find the site worthwhile. And of course, for information and saving tips on health insurance, don’t forget to visit the InsureMe Consumer Resource Center! (We’ve got what you need to know about health insurance in your state, too.)
