3:24 am
you might actually pay. second, she says those list prices are too high because they don't factor in insurance payments or medicare's rates which are lower. is there any useful information for consumers in these lists of prices at all? >> i think the most useful information is that the prices are wildly inflated. >> reporter: some hospitals, like st. luke's university health net work in bethlehem, pennsylvania, have launched their own price checking pages. executive francine botek. >> a good next step for hospitals would be to provide greater transparency into what patients will actually be required to pay. out of pocket. >> one of the concerns pinder raises over those generally posted list prices is people may see them and not realize they don't take insurance and medicare into account. jeff, the concern is then they may not get the treatments because they may think they can't afford them because the list prices look so high. >> actually knowing what you're paying for something, what a
