Vol. 33 | No. 8
The latest study published in “Health Affairs” shows how consumers are responsive to price information delivered real time as they are making health care decisions and how providers react to this shift in consumer utilization to stay competitive in the marketplace.
With the support of the AIM Member Engagement tool, Specialty Care Shopper, health plan members chose less expensive MRIs after receiving price information which helped save $220 per test in total health system costs.
