PODCAST: Hospital Executives Confess Fee-For-Service Care Drives Costs

By Eric Bricker MD

1) Fee-for-Services Motivates Hospitals to Increase Costs.
2) Medicare and Commercial Insurance Companies Have Not Changed That Motivation with ‘Value-Based’ Payments.
3) Hospital Prices Have NO Connection to the Underlying Cost of a Test or Procedure.
4) Most Don’t Even Know What the Underlying Test or Procedure Cost Is in the First Place.




Thank You
