The 2010 Affordable Care Act introduced sweeping changes to both the insurance market and healthcare delivery systems. Catalyzed by healthcare reform and increased employer adoption of defined contribution and insurance exchanges, the healthcare market is transitioning from an employer-centric “wholesale” model to a more consumer-centric “retail” model. Over the next 5-10 years, this trend to retailization will create a market of more than 100M consumers choosing their own health insurance coverage.

U.S. health care prices continue to grow at a low rate, according to a recent report from the Altarum Institute.  Prices grew 1.1 percent in July 2013 relative to July 2012. That was the same rate as June 2013 and only a tenth of a percent above the May 2013 rate, which was the lowest in Altarum’s data series going back to January 1990.

We believe in cost transparency, so you know exactly what you are going to pay before a #surgery is even scheduled. Surgeries negotiated through Surgery Center Network cost 70-80% less than hospitals. Learn more about cost transparency on our latest blog post!

Many studies have concluded that consumers will be highly price sensitive when they shop on insurance exchanges.

Doctor’s visits, prescription drugs, co-pays, premiums—the amount of money you spend on healthcare every year can feel endless. Luckily, a little comparison shopping and smart detective work can net significant savings.
