Employees in the U.S. have dealt with barriers to healthcare for decades. They often find that, while they do have insurance plans available through their employers, these plans can position care as unaffordable and inaccessible.
Avoiding appointments, treatments, and even the ER; the rising cost of healthcare services in the US is a leading contributor to our patients’ hesitancy to seek care. Despite access to a span of medical information and innovative technology, along with a relatively stable economy, the U.S. also has one of the highest costs of healthcare in the world.
In this infographic, we explain how the employer-employee sponsored medical home can help achieve these long sought out goals: Eliminating non-value add middlemen and reducing the financial impact to predetermined costs.
One of the biggest issues in healthcare cost today is providing patients with an accurate estimate of their cost. In today’s world of changing healthcare regulations, complicated contracts, a lack of data or incorrect patient data, and more, it’s not surprising that providers can be just as confused as patients.
On January 30, three corporate tycoons — Amazon, JPMorgan Chase & Co., and Berkshire Hathaway — announced that they were joining forces to create an independent healthcare company for their employees, with the goal of providing more transparency at a lower cost.
Healthcare isn’t like most other things where you get the best by paying the most. In Fact, in most cases quite the opposite is true. Use this infographic to distinguish the difference between expert doctors and averages doctors.
