The SafeCare Group Rates Hospital ChargesYou cannot afford to get sick in America - it is just too expensive to get sick”— Yisrael M. Safeek, MD, MBA, CEO, The SafeCare GroupLEXINGTON, KENTUCKY, USA, September 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The SafeCare Group, the company that connects people with great hospitals is now rating hospital charges as part of its quarterly five-star ratings of over 4,500 hospitals.
The ratings are in hospital charges, readmissions, infections, deaths, and hospital complications.
100safecarehospitals.com site works in tandem with rateahospital.com site where patients can find, compare, and rate hospitals based on care experiences.
“You cannot afford to get sick in America - it is just too expensive to get sick,” stated Yisrael M. Safeek, MD, MBA, CEO, The SafeCare Group. “The hospital association lobby, group purchasing organizations, and drug companies plan on keeping it that way. Even if you have excellent insurance coverage that pays 80% of the total bill, the remaining 20% can exceed $100,000 for major surgery.”
“Hospital stays are expensive - adding up to more than $3.3 trillion a year in the U.S.,” stated Yisrael M. Safeek, JD, Chief of Operations, The SafeCare Group. “There is no standard system that determines what a hospital charges for a particular service or procedure. So, we created our site to help patients see how their hospital compare with charges.”
Some average hospital charges are:
• heart valve replacement: $170,000
• heart bypass: $123,000
• spinal fusion: $110,000
• hip replacement: $40,364
• knee replacement: $35,000
• angioplasty: $28,2000
• gastric bypass: $25,000
• cornea: $17,500
Since 2010, The SafeCare Group listened to the numerous emails and letters of complaints, suggestions, and feedback from patients and incorporated these into its hospital ratings applications. The 100safecarehospitals.com site demonstrates The SafeCare Group’s increased focus and continued investment in developing solutions that bring value to hospital consumers seeking great care.
When consumers have a healthcare need, they start looking for hospitals that can offer great care. RateAHospital and 100SafeCareHospitals are means for hospital consumers to find and compare hospitals.
