American’s rising concern about health care costs prompts innovation from Regence

By Regence | September 23, 2015

According to eHealth, a private health exchange provider, 6 in 10 consumers are more concerned about the financial impact that an expensive medical emergency and paying for healthcare could have on them than they are about saving enough for retirement or covering their kids’ education.

Don Antonucci recently tackled these concerns in a recent post on LinkedIn where he outlined how Regence is turning to innovative care models like our preventive care benefit services that help keep costs down. He also discusses Regence’s Treatment Cost Estimator which allows members to search for quality providers while seeing what the cost of care may be based on their specific benefits package.

You can learn more about how Regence is working to keep costs down, create transparency, and offer services that provide care to our customers when they need it the most by reading Don Antonucci’s full article Why Cost Matters.
