Understanding Healthcare Prices: A Consumer Guide


The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) has developed a guide to help consumers understand where to get answers to their questions about healthcare prices, compare prices among providers, and manage their out-of-pocket costs. Hospitals, physician practices, payers, and others are encouraged to share this resource with consumers. This guide can also be useful to others in the healthcare field and for critical access hospital board of directors. It explains the intricacies of healthcare pricing. It covers pricing for those with health insurance, in- and -out-of-network, emergency care, Medicare, and the uninsured.
