'Competition works! Amazing!'

Samaritan member

My Need involved surgery to fix a torn meniscus in my left knee. I went on MediBid to get some bids for MRIs and the surgery, but I still wanted to check with my local hospital.

Once the hospital learned I would be paying cash, they immediately offered 60 percent off. Then they said I could get another 20 percent off based on a financial assessment. Now they were reducing a $25,000 surgery down to $5,200, which is close to what independent surgery centers charge.

Competition works! Amazing!

The surgery went well, I received all the Shares to pay my bills, and I really enjoyed receiving the letters of encouragement and prayers.
