Let's Talk About Fee-for-Service

September 26, 2014

The cost of health care is rising at a rate that many, including us, find appalling. And unfortunately, much of the responsibility for paying for health care is being pushed to you, the consumer-patient. While there are many factors behind this rise, what is the way we are currently paying for care and how is it affecting costs?

This awesome video from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina does an excellent job helping you understand what this “fee-for-service” model is and what is has to do with costs.

Even if you aren’t in North Carolina, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Let’s Talk Cost site is a great resource to help you understand the various issues with health care costs and discover how we can all be part of the solution.
