Pocketero is the leading network built for patients who pay out of pocket for healthcare. If you ever pay by cash, check, or credit card, Pocketero is for you.
Most Americans pay out of pocket for their healthcare. Some have health insurance, but haven't reached their deductible. These patients pay mediocre prices. Others don't have health insurance. These patients pay special "chargemaster" prices that are incredibly high because they have been deliberately inflated. These prices cause millions every year suffer financial hardship and even bankruptcy.
People who pay out of pocket for healthcare - especially those without insurance - deserve the best prices. After all, dealing with health insurance is complicated, slow, and expensive. Why shouldn't the best customers get the best prices? Only because health insurers prevent it.
You can't just walk into a health clinic and get the best price, even if you're paying cash. Doctors and hospitals have insurance contracts which prevent it. You must be part of a network. And to be affordable, it must be a non-insurance network. That's why we created Pocketero.

We're a Public Benefit Corporation designed to empower millions of Americans with the very best prices on healthcare. And we make it very affordable to join our network.

And they have been suffering. We're here to change that. We are the leading network for patients who pay out of pocket, and we are here to ensure you get the very best prices on healthcare.
