Have you ever received a surprise medical bill? Were you ever shocked by how much a hospital charged for medical care? Did you ever wonder why hospital prices vary widely from facility to facility, and sometimes from patient to patient? Cynthia Fisher is a life sciences entrepreneur and investor who was so disturbed seeing friends and acquaintances facing financial ruin due to outrageous medical bills that she founded a non-profit organization to advocate for patient rights. Her organization, Patient Rights Advocate, has a dual mission of helping consumers comparison shop for medical care and fight onerous bills, while lobbying the federal government to require price transparency by hospitals. In this episode, she shares tips that every patient or would-be patient needs to know.

 The Take-Away: There is still a lot of work to be done but a lot of progress is being made to hold hospitals accountable and establish a competitive market with fair prices in today’s healthcare world.
