Medical Mutual Launches Healthcare Cost Comparison Tool

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Medical Mutual has launched an online shopping tool, My Care Compare, to help its members find the best price, provider and location for healthcare services.

With My Care Compare, members can review satisfaction scores for physicians and quality ratings for healthcare facilities in their area. Medical Mutual members also can easily check cost estimates for more than 170 types of healthcare procedures and tests.

My Care Compare provides locations and costs for a growing list of common services including:

  • Office visits
  • Blood tests and other lab services
  • X-rays, MRIs and CT scans
  • Physical therapy
  • Many minor and major surgeries

“Healthcare costs and quality vary widely depending on where you go and whom you see,” said Medical Mutual chairman, president and CEO, Rick Chiricosta. “With many people being asked to cover more of the cost for their healthcare, through high-deductible and consumer-driven health plans, My Care Compare will be valuable in giving families and individuals more control in holding the line against higher healthcare expenses.”

The My Care Compare tool can be found on Medical Mutual’s member website, My Health Plan at, and is available to all members who are Ohio residents.
