ARE YOU PAYING MORE AT A HOSPITAL CLINIC ?
Study Finds Hospitals Charging Higher Prices Than Independent Clinics.
Modern Healthcare magazine (6/26, Evans) reports that an analysis of autoworker health-plan spending across 18 cities has found that “hospital outpatient prices for standard blood tests, cancer screening and other services varied widely and were sharply higher, on average, than prices charged by ambulatory clinics and independent doctors.” The article says the study, published by the National Institute for Health Care Reform, suggests that “hospitals with more market clout may be using leverage to set higher prices.”
HOSPITAL owned urgent care centers are required by federal law to charge a "facility fee" for care at their urgent care centers.
Immediate Care Center: the Doctor is IN in Schererville IN is a walk-in clinic NOT affiliated with a hospital - so no extra facility charges! [Note: Many insurance plans will not pay this extra fee.]
