Oklahoma surgical center creates price war after posting surgery prices online
OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma City surgery center is posting all-inclusive guaranteed quotes for common surgical procedures online — and has started a price war for affordable healthcare in the area.
Dr. Keith Smith and Dr. Steven Lantier launched Surgery Center of Oklahoma 15 years ago and started posting their prices online about four years ago.
The prices are all-inclusive quotes and they are guaranteed.
“When we first started we thought we were about half the price of the hospitals,” Dr. Lantier said. “Then we found out we’re less than half price. Then we find out we’re a sixth to an eighth of what their prices are. I can’t believe the average person can afford health care at these prices.”
Their goal was to start a price war and they did. Click here to read more on this story — and to see the difference in prices for several common surgical procedures.
