Doctor cost by location
Summary: “Since the depths of the Great Recession, the cost of health care in the U.S. has steadily risen,” Nick Selbe writes at madison.com. “As a result, Americans are shouldering more of their health care costs than they have in recent years, according to the Washington Post. No one likes having to go to the doctor’s office, but in this climate, it’s wise to save up should the need arise. With this in mind, CareerTrends — part of the Graphiq network — found the 50 places where seeing a doctor costs the most. The data comes from the Council for Community and Economic Research’s Cost of Living Index (2015). The report is compiled by pricing the cost of a general practitioner’s routine examination of an established patient across different locations.
