Compare medical costs

Have I mentioned http://healthcarebluebook.com/ before?

I have insurance right now, with all of its paperwork glory, but for most of my life have been uninsured. This is a great resource for comparing the average cost of various medical procedures in your area.

For example, someone worried about the cost of getting a cavity filled can go on this site and see its about $100. Hopefully this lessens sticker shock and makes folks more likely to care for themselves.
