(Updated 2022) We’re always interested in seeing who’s visiting. Today, someone from UnitedHealthCare in Plymouth, Minn., spent 6 minutes reading our post about sleep study costs. Here’s a screenshot from our Clicky analytics panel.
We’re happy to be providing such valuable services to the insurance industry! It’s also clear that they found us by Googling. Good job, UHC!

Also recently, someone from the Plymouth, Minn., office spent almost 20 minutes reading about the price of Dupixent, an eczema drug.
And we had 31 visitors from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, over the last month or so. These visitors did a lot of searching for prices, many for MRI pricing, and read several of our blog posts on MRI prices.
