What is cost-plus healthcare? Cost-plus healthcare is a pricing model where your insurance company pays a provider based on what medicare would pay out, plus a negotiated rate on top of that. As many people know, transparency is a big problem when it comes to healthcare in America. Often times, the insured is unaware of what their treatment costs and how much their insurer paid out for that procedure. The Medicare rate has become the benchmark to be able to negotiate a fair rate, being that the Federal Government is the largest purchaser of healthcare in this nation. While it’s not perfect, Medicare is the closest thing we have to a fixed-rate in the healthcare industry. So, why wouldn’t we use this as the benchmark to navigate the cost of treatments?
Cost-plus healthcare, also commonly referred to as referenced-based pricing creates transparency, and does not favor one party over the other. It reduces fraudulent, or inflated charges which creates trust and makes health care much more affordable.
