FAIR Health Consumer's medical cost lookup tool provides access to FH® Total Treatment Cost bundles. With these, users can view the typical costs for all components of care for certain chronic and acute conditions and event-based procedures. The most frequently visited bundles in 2023 were:

Vaginal delivery;
C-section;
Colonoscopy;
ADHD and hyperkinetic syndrome; and
Rheumatoid arthritis.
In 2023, consumers showed a strong interest in identifying costs for giving birth, with vaginal delivery and C-section ranking as the two most frequently visited total treatment cost bundles. Cost scenarios not included on the list in 2022, but included in 2023, were colonoscopy and ADHD and hyperkinetic syndrome, which replaced hysterectomy and knee arthroscopy. Rheumatoid arthritis was one of the most utilized FH Total Treatment Cost bundles in both years but fell from third place in 2022 to fifth place in 2023.

FAIR Health also uses its database to power a free consumer website available in English and Spanish, which enables consumers to estimate and plan for their healthcare expenditures and offers a rich educational platform on health insurance. An English/Spanish mobile app offers the same educational platform in a concise format and links to the cost estimation tools.
