“We are bringing to life the promise of consumer-directed healthcare by empowering consumers in the Greater Seattle area,” said HealthInReach.com CEO, Scott Sangster. “People typically face out-of-pocket costs on things like dental care without knowing the costs in advance; and they often pay much higher prices than insurance companies can negotiate.
