Deep Throat & Cheap Vasectomies in New Orleans

deepWe have more wannabe Deep Throats than we can count. We have providers calling to trash their competitors — some anonymously, some not. We have been a topic of jokes at a school fundraiser where one of the auction gifts was a … vasectomy, cheap!

Total magic in New Orleans!
So, our New Orleans partnership with WVUE FOX 8 Live television and NOLA.com I The Times-Picayune

Our responses are Through The Roof. Off The Charts. Unbelievable. Ginormous!

In a month, we have been inundated: hundreds of voicemails, hundreds of emails and hundreds of shares on our software on our partners’ sites. We have thousands and thousands of searches.

We have been flooded with mash notes on Facebook, hundreds of love-letter comments on our stories — and people dropping in with bills, and calling to say “I don’t have Internet but I want you to have my bills.”

We have more wannabe Deep Throats than we can count. We have providers calling to trash their competitors — some anonymously, some not. We have been a topic of jokes at a school fundraiser where one of the auction gifts was a … vasectomy, cheap!

We have stories that will make you cry, and stories that will make your hair stand on end.

Our partners are FEROCIOUS reporters. Come, listen and read:

Fox 8 Live’s Lee Zurik on absolutely ridiculous bills.
NOLA.com’s Jed Lipinski on that same topic.

Jed on what happens when journos tell hospitals to stop keeping secrets. (Hint: Good things.)
Lee on that same topic.

Jed and Manuel Torres at NOLA.com I The Times-Picayune did a Facebook Live that got 4.2k views.

And! Our Data Party’s likely to come in mid-June.  You’ll be hearing more soon.

We  are still blazing trails in Florida, reporting on health prices with amazing partners WLRN public radio in Miami and WUSF public radio in Tampa Bay, and their Health News Florida collaboration. For background on other partnerships, go here.

And … yes, we’re watching Washington. With all this uncertainty, ClearHealthCosts offers something different: Certainty. The phone is ringing off the hook, and we expect to announce new partnerships soon.

And so, to work. Thank you again for all you do!
Cheers
Jeanne and the ClearHealthCosts team

P.S. Tweets if you want ’em:

What happens when journos tell hospitals to stop keeping secrets?

Why pay 10x the price for a medical test?
Because you were hoodwinked?
No more!
