Healthcare Triage: Patients Don’t Shop Around, Even When They Can

You probably know where to pump the cheapest gas and how to get price comparisons online in seconds for headphones and cars. But how would you find the best deal on an M.R.I. or a knee replacement? No idea, right?

Special thanks to Austin, who wrote the Upshot column from which this episode was adapted.
