Tampa's Save On Medical Provider Network Expands for Patients
Patients in the Tampa/St. Petersburg region now have 21 new practice locations within the Save On Medical provider network where they can compare pricing and quality metrics to make their own educated health care decisions.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
Based in Tampa, Florida, Save On Medical is pleased to announce the addition of 21 new providers to their network of quality physicians in their home town. Patients can now compare over 30 providers in Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Hernando counties.
An addition of over 100 new providers in Florida alone means that Save On Medical has providers covering one of the states with the highest uninsured patient population. There are 3.85 Million uninsured Floridians, which accounts for 25.3% of the state. It was for this reason that Save On Medical focused on developing an extensive provider network in Florida from the beginning.
Tampa's counties have surprisingly high uninsured populations with Hernando county at 26.8%, Hillsborough county at 27.3%, Pasco county at 26.1% and Pinellas county at 25.7%.
The ability to price shop and find self-pay pricing is no longer an impossible feat. Price transparency is becoming available to the masses and is not limited to just medical professionals anymore. Newly participating practices include the following; Rose Radiology Locations, SDI Diagnostic Imaging, Maru Diagnostic Imaging Locations, Bayview Radiology, Spring Hill MRI, Excell Medical, Brandon Open MRI, Palm Harbor MRI, and Advanced Diagnostic locations.

About Save On Medical
Save On Medical is a patient tool similar to Expedia for travelers. The website allows patients to price shop, compare and book health care procedures online. Patients are able to search for medical services by price, quality and convenience with the help of the SOM Docometer. By comparing average costs of services in the patients' region, Save On Medical allows for pricing transparency in the health care market, helping the patient to decide what is important to them when it comes to their care. Save On Medical patients can easily schedule appointments and pay for services stress-free and at a fraction of the price, in a time where health care costs are high and price transparency seems impossible.
