Becoming a More Informed Consumer

BECOMING A MORE INFORMED CONSUMER

Becoming a more informed consumer is essential in combating the rising costs of healthcare. The actual cost of medical services and procedures is staggering. And it’s no secret that healthcare costs continue to rise exponentially each year.

Why play a more active role in understanding the costs of your medical services and procedures? Well the answer is simple, why not? By adopting a more consumer-minded approach to health care like you do other consumer goods, you’re more inclined to think through quality, costs and overall value. After all, you would never buy a new big screen television or new car without feeling like you’re getting the very best price, so why wouldn’t you shop around for healthcare too?

Regardless of what medical plan you’re enrolled in, learning to practice healthcare consumerism needs to become a natural part of your daily routine. Understanding that you’re likely paying more for things like prescription drugs, basic medical services, higher cost scans (MRIs), etc. is important in saving money long term.

These educational videos will offer you tools and resources to begin to shift your thinking and become a savvier health care consumer.
