Patients are Struggling to Anticipate and Pay for Care. How Can We Bridge that Gap? - on demand
This event is now available on-demand in Ed Plus. Subscribe to Ed Plus today to access this webinar and more! This webinar — recorded on August 30, 2023 — is eligible for ACMPE and CEU credit.
CareCredit, a Synchrony solution, conducted a Lifetime of Healthcare Costs (LOHC) study in 2022 which found that patients underestimated the cost of their annual care by 145%. They are paying more due to rising out-of-pocket costs, high-deductible health plans and decreasing coverage. These financial challenges, coupled with a disconnect between perceived and actual costs, may be preventing many people from getting the care they want, when they need it.
Synchrony’s CareCredit research findings can help consumers and providers prepare for healthcare expenses. In this webinar, Synchrony’s Claude Royster will discuss the findings and solutions for patients and providers alike. Using the LOHC data as a springboard, Claude will share insights and build awareness on how to best prepare for and navigate the challenges presented by rising healthcare costs.
This 60-minute webinar will provide you the knowledge to:
- Understand patients’ perceptions of care costs over a lifetime versus actual costs
- Address financial challenges via informed discussions with patients
- Prepare solutions aimed at addressing financial barriers to care
