Why will these healthcare providers give self-pay patients 50% to 70% discounts?
Because … today in the U.S. there are approximately 1 million physicians, over 2,000 diagnostic imaging centers and hundreds-of-thousands of physical therapists.
When healthcare providers treat or test insured patients, their health insurance companies pays them approximately 25% to 30% of their usual and customary fees. Additionally, due to rising overhead and bureaucratic red tape, more and more healthcare providers are looking to tap into the growing market of self-pay patients, and they are happy to give self-pay patients a discount of 50% to 75%.
(Although many cash-friendly healthcare providers accept insurance, they give uninsured and other self-pay patients deeply discounted prices.)
