aiser Health News and NPR are undertaking a project to investigate and dissect real-life medical bills and explanations of benefits (EOB’s), including bills for mental health treatment. They expect that examining the bills will shed light on the often surprising prices for health care in the U.S. Along the way, they are hoping to help people learn how to be more active and successful in managing the costs of their care. The new initiative will be called the Kaiser Health News’ Bill-of-the-Month Club.
