Estimate Health Care Costs BEFORE Your Appointment

When you find out that you need a health service, such as an X-ray, lab work, or surgery, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? If it’s, “How much is THAT gonna cost me?” you’re not alone. It’s an important consideration that, until now, hasn’t always been easy to calculate. And the difference between providers can amount to hundreds of dollars.

Know Before You Go

That’s why we created the new Care Cost Estimator tool at It lets you compare estimated out-of-pocket costs for doctors and services covered by your health plan. The Care Cost Estimator also lets you:

  • Get estimates for a range of costs associated with a procedure.
  • View your deductible contributions to date.
  • See the average price of a service.


Independence Blue Cross is committed to helping our members get the right care at the right place at the right cost. We take away the uncertainty, so you can focus on your health.
