Enhanced Cost Estimation and Physician Review Tools

Find a Doctor & Estimate Costs integrates provider search functionality with provider quality data and cost estimation capabilities. The tool combines an enhanced provider search feature with quality data, cost estimates, and physician reviews—so our members will know what to expect before they get care. It allows members to:

About Estimate Costs

PPO and HMO members can access cost estimates through Find a Doctor & Estimate Costs. They can search for over 1,600 of the most common medical services in diagnostic, inpatient, outpatient, and office visit treatment categories. We provide them with:

  • Average allowed amounts
  • A link to review benefits that allows them to calculate an estimated out-of-pocket liability
  • Out-of-pocket cost
About Patient Review of Physicians
  • From our MyBlue website, members can share their care experience and rate their physicians using Find a Doctor & Estimate Costs. Members have the option to read and write reviews on participating providers (physician and professional ancillary providers).
  • Members can read reviews without logging into Find a Doctor & Estimate Costs. However, to write a review, they must be logged in to their MyBlue account. This is required as members need to authenticate and accept a terms and condition agreement and attest that they have received services from the physician before they can complete a review.
  • For more information on Patient Reviews of Physicians, read our Fact Sheet and Terms and Conditions.
About SmartShopper

We want to give our members easy-to-use tools that help them plan care with confidence and at the right price. Our SmartShopper reward and engagement program does just that.

SmartShopper is a program available through our Find a Doctor & Estimate Costs tool that helps members compare costs for a specific set of common clinical services and procedures. Because there are no nationally accepted quality measures for these services, our members will continue to rely on their primary care or prescribing doctor’s recommendations and guidance, alongside the cost information this program provides.

SmartShopper:

  • Rewards members for comparing health care professionals and medical facilities on cost, and selecting lower cost services and procedures.
  • Allows members and their dependents to earn up to $250 if they use a lower cost practice or facility for certain health care services.
  • Is available through our Find a Doctor & Estimate Costs tool when a member logs into their MyBlue account.
  • Is managed by Vitals®, an independent company that also powers our Find a Doctor & Estimate Costs tool.
