Methodist Health System and Alegent Health System in Omaha, Nebraska are joining the ranks of hospitals offering pricing information online. While the Alegent pricing Web site (My Cost) was launched in January, the Methodist Health System has just begun posting online prices for medical procedures in an effort to help patients calculate their out-of-pocket health care costs. However, as reported in Omaha World Herald, there is a lack of uniformity among the sites, including the two Omaha offerings, making it difficult for patients to make valid cost comparisons.
