PoP4 – “What will this cost?” The hardest question in US healthcare! – with Clear Health Costs

Want better control over your health costs? Investigative journalism has finally come to healthcare, and it’s winning prizes big-time.

My guest Jeanne Pinder is a former New York Times editor whose company Clear Health Costs has just won the Edward R. Murrow award for investigative journalism, for their contribution to the “Cracking the Code” series in New Orleans. The series also won the Society of Professional Journalists National Public Service Award, and was even a finalist for the ultimate – the Peabody Award, “the Pulitzer of broadcast.” Hear insane, funny, and infuriating health cost stories from Jeanne’s work, and learn how to educate yourself, fight back, and sometimes find better prices.

The money trail in American healthcare is deeply buried and hard to cut through. If you’ve ever been puzzled, annoyed, or ripped off by a medical bill, you’re not alone.
