Today, more people are paying for all or a greater share of their healthcare costs. There are many reasons for this such as greater enrollment in high deductible health plans or not having health insurance at all. How much you pay for a doctor's visit, medical test or surgery can depend on which doctor, hospital or other healthcare provider you choose.

Here's how this report can help you:
