BuildMyBod Health and Annals of Plastic Surgery

BuildMyBod Health’s technology combines price transparency and lead generation and is detailed in this month’s issue of Annals of Plastic Surgery, a peer-reviewed journal. Not a plastic surgeon?! That’s fine…the subject matter is applicable to all healthcare professionals that offer services that may be paid out-of-pocket due to a high-deductible health plan or because it is considered cosmetic. Regardless of your specialty or facility, you can still gain useful insights from this peer-reviewed article.

 

For the consumer, BuildMyBod Health allows you to check pricing on out-of-pocket costs that you’ll be spending on outpatient services before you hit your deductible. So in a way, BuildMyBod Health is your health insurance guide before your insurance kicks in. Chances are you’ll have to pay $5000 to $6000 out-of-pocket so you might as well find the most affordable options out there.
