What is a glass frog?

The glass frog is a small, translucent-skinned frog found in Central and South America. It is called a glass frog because it's skin is see-through, exposing its heart and other organs while camouflaging it from predators. At glassFROGG, we bring that same element of transparency to healthcare costs. Just as a group of frogs is called an army, glassFROGG arms users with tools to make healthcare more affordable.

What are my bills being used for?

When you upload your medical bills or EOBs, you are allowing other glassFROGG users to see the true costs of healthcare. Users do not see your name or contact information, they only see the procedure you received, as well as any costs associated with it. This keeps your information confidential.

What info are you extracting from my bills?

We extract the following information, if available:

  • - The full cost for a procedure as well as contributing costs
  • - The date(s) healthcare was provided
  • - The location/provider of the procedure

Can I upload my medical bills if I am uninsured or on Medicare/Medicaid?

Yes, you can. The most beneficial and informative data comes from direct bills. However, glassFROGG welcomes all medical bills and insurance claims. You can upload your medical bills, explanation of benefits (EOB), or any other documents detailing the price of your medical procedure.

How do I know my personal medical information is safe?

glassFROGG does not share your name, contact information, or other personal details. The only information we extract from your uploaded bill is the name of the procedure, its price, and the facility at which it was performed. All other data provided is only shared in an anonymous, non-identifying manner using your public display name. For more information, view the glassFROGG Privacy Policy.

Does glassFROGG store copies of my medical bills?

glassFROGG stores the submitted bills for cost, date, and procedure data, and to validate that the data is authentic. All images are encrypted before being stored, and personal and identifiable information is never shared with anyone. If you’d like extra peace of mind, you can physically cover or black out the name and address on the bill before submitting it.

What information do other glassFROGG users see from my medical bills?

Other users only see the cost, date, and procedure available for search. They can also see your public display name. No images of medical bills are shared.
