The Costs of Care community is a partnership between GHDonline and Costs of Care, a 501c3 nonprofit that is transforming American healthcare delivery by empowering patients and their caregivers to deflate medical bills. We see an opportunity to return $100 billion to the American people by trimming the fat out of medical bills – replacing or rejecting services that eat into our wallets without making us healthier. Visit our webpage and follow our blog. Also, follow us on Twitter @costsofcare for our latest posts.
