Medical Procedures

Outpatient procedures are all pre-planned, scheduled operations. When you give HCSN two to three days notification, our experts develop a targeted report that includes four price comparisons for your procedure. We base our reports on:

  • The referral given to you by your physician
  • Three additional providers within 20 miles of your home or work

HCSN only shops providers within your insurance network. When data is available regarding quality of service for both the physician and/or the facility, HCSN shares that information with you.

Common medical procedures that cover a wide-range of prices include:

  • Colonoscopy
  • Skin cancer removal
  • Biopsies
  • Hernia
  • Kidney stones
  • Ear tube placement
  • Pain management

Surgeries

HCSN also shops pre-planned, in-patient procedures. When you use our HealthCare Shopping services, HCSN always gives you a choice among four providers within your insurance network. When data is available regarding quality of service for both the physician and/or the facility, HCSN shares that information with you.

Variable priced in-patient surgeries often include:

  • Heart procedures
  • Joint replacements
  • Major surgeries
