If you have spinal stenosis or slipped #vertebrae, your doctor may recommend #SpinalFusion surgery, or lumbar fusion surgery to restore your spine. This is a fairly extensive procedure that can cost up to $90,000 or more at a hospital.

The 2010 Affordable Care Act introduced sweeping changes to both the insurance market and healthcare delivery systems. Catalyzed by healthcare reform and increased employer adoption of defined contribution and insurance exchanges, the healthcare market is transitioning from an employer-centric “wholesale” model to a more consumer-centric “retail” model. Over the next 5-10 years, this trend to retailization will create a market of more than 100M consumers choosing their own health insurance coverage.

The existing model has made it so there is no way of knowing what a procedure will cost in advance and when we do find out—long after we have received treatment—it is often terribly difficult to understand ...

Doctor’s visits, prescription drugs, co-pays, premiums—the amount of money you spend on healthcare every year can feel endless. Luckily, a little comparison shopping and smart detective work can net significant savings.
