Some uninsured clients are turning to coupons to pay for healthcare.
Physicians are getting creative to lure in patients and the uninsured are looking for deals to pay for costly care.
It looks like a trend that might catch on for a win-win in a tough economy.
The deals are popping up across the nation. In New York, a full medical checkup with blood, stool and urinalysis testing sold for $69 in December on Groupon — below the regular price of $200. In Seattle, a flu shot was offered on AmazonLocal for $17, down from $35. In Chicago, LivingSocial sold a dental exam, cleaning, X-rays and teeth whitening trays for $99, a savings of $142.
