The only thing that happens when you submit your email address, is we send you an email asking you to create an account if you wish. We don’t spam you with daily/weekly emails, and we definitely don’t disclose your email address with any third parties.
Why, then, are we asking for your email address? First, a search engine like ours is only possible with the support of the public. Costs of medical procedures are purposefully held secret by large corporations, and knowing that there are many people out there interested in what we’re creating gives us the ability to continue expanding our search engine throughout the entire United States and to all hospitals and health care providers.
Second, if you choose to create an account with us, you will benefit from not having to repeatedly enter your insurance plan and ZIP code every time you visit our site. You can also re-visit procedures you have searched in the past, in case you forget the names of certain ones (we don’t blame you, the names of some of these procedures are very difficult to read, much less type out).
Third, we are hoping to create useful tools that all Americans can use to securely store all of their medical information in one place and access them whenever needed. We would love to let you know when new features are available. Of course, we don’t want to flood your inbox; you will hear from us at most once every few months. If you’d like to hear more frequent updates from us, please create an account!
If you have any questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
