Of all the exciting developments in the free market movement in healthcare in the United States, one of the ones I’m most excited about is right here in Oklahoma City. Alliance Deaconess Hospital – a hospital we’ve worked with very closely in the last 2-3 years – they have embraced transparent, up-front, guaranteed pricing for maternity services.

That’s right. If you’re going to have a baby and you want to know what it’s going to cost, you will soon be able to see their prices… on my website. I am going to post their maternity prices on the Surgery Center’s website right after the first of the year. I was going to wait until after the first of the year to make this announcement, but it’s so darn exciting, I just couldn’t wait.

I wanted to tell you about this: the prices have been vetted by people who are actuaries, and look at these numbers and compare it to what has been paid many times before. And everyone, I can tell you, who is paying for healthcare, is extremely excited about this development. As am I, as you can tell.

I will have these prices on our website shortly after the first of the year. But I wanted the viewers of this blog to know about it first.
