A Better Emergency Department Patient Access Strategy

Although traditionally reliant on reimbursement from insurance carriers, today’s hospitals are now looking to patients for a much higher percentage of revenue for healthcare services. The average American household spends $5,000 on healthcare annually, and two-thirds of insured Americans have annual deductibles above $1,000. 


This revenue shift represents a big change for hospitals and consumers alike. Consequently, many patients need help understanding how greater financial responsibility fits within the broader scope of their care delivery options. Without this help, some patients may find it difficult to navigate their care costs.
