How Much Does It Cost to Have a Baby in This Country?

No clue? You’re not alone.

Not only do you not know how much it will cost, you also probably don’t know that only in America does a woman get charged item by item instead of a single lump sum. If you didn’t read this New York Times article from 2013, how could you?

Unfortunately it is not uncommon for women to undergo sticker shock in our country when they receive their hospital bills.

So how is OpRate trying to prevent this?

With every medical expense you post on, we will continue to develop a multifaceted tool to help you do what matters: have a baby without any sticker shock.
