A Second Opinion with Senator Bill Frist, M.D.


May 23, 2022

Today I am joined by Dr. Keith Smith, the co-founder of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma, which provides transparent, affordable healthcare services to patients from all over the country.

 

Keith is a pioneer of price transparency and affordable healthcare. At his surgery center, patients pay up-front for services at a fraction of their cost at major hospitals. In 2009, Keith launched a website displaying all-inclusive, bundled pricing and co-founded the Free Market Medical Association.

 

Join us for our conversation today as Keith and I breakdown the impact of transparent pricing in healthcare, why healthcare has historically struggled to fit into traditional markets, and how the narrative of price transparency is changing.
