See What’s Covered
View what your plan covers and what you’ll pay for common services, such as doctors’ office visits and prescriptions.
Get Cost Estimates
Get cost estimates for specialized services, such as imaging and surgery.
Many people don’t know that you will find a wide range of prices for medical services, depending on where you go. For example, out-of-pocket costs for a standard office visit can range from $20 to $250. The range can be even wider for other types of visits, lab tests and X-rays.
Cost estimates are based on actual claims data, so you can see how much you might expect to pay for a health care service. While each individual situation is unique, the estimates can give you more peace of mind knowing what a service might really cost you.
Find Doctor Right (and Hospital)
Choosing the wrong doctor could leave you feeling frustrated—or worse, dealing with inappropriate care.
It’s estimated that as many as 15% of cases involve a missed or incorrect diagnosis. The right doctor can mean the difference between early treatment at the first signs of a stroke or being sent home with a suspected migraine.
It’s not just the “who,” but the “where” that matters, too. Some hospitals simply do a better job than others. For example, hospitals that perform a lot of the same types of surgeries typically have better patient outcomes. On the other end of the spectrum, underperforming hospitals consistently have higher rates of staph infection and more frequent readmissions.
The best available information is sourced from organizations committed to rating health care providers to give you a clear picture of doctor and hospital quality ratings.
Find Excellence in Specialized Care
Hospitals named as “Centers of Medical Excellence” or “BlueDistinction Centers” focus on a specific medical condition or type of surgery, like maternity care or hip replacement. Due to their specialized scope, centers of excellence usually have access to expertise and resources that aren’t available at a typical hospital. Facing knee surgery? Look into an orthopedic center of excellence for high-quality health care. Need a heart procedure? Search for your nearest center of excellence for cardiac care.
Read (and Write!) Reviews
Nearly 60% of patients say they do online research and read user reviews before choosing a doctor.
User reviews have been a longtime go-to for ranking just about anything, from restaurants to hair salons, and healthcare’s no exception.
UC Vita (Engage Wellbeing) lets you see reviews from others about their experiences with doctors and at hospitals, so you can feel confident that you’re choosing the right provider for your needs.
And you can help others by sharing your experiences with providers, too.
