Today, due to a confluence of economic, political and social issues, more and more uninsured and under-insured consumers are shopping around for affordable health care. Lacking market volume (muscle) to negotiate low prices, self-pay patients must absorb higher prices, haggle for a discount or go without! Fortunately, being uninsured or under-insured does not mean one can't pay for affordable health care. SelfPayMD connects uninsured patients to cash-friendly, board certified medical or surgical specialists, with office visits at only $99.
