What Do the Left and Right Price Tags Mean?
(left hand price tag)
- The retail amount
- Represents your maximum financial risk
- This is your bill if your claim is denied (happens 20% of the time) or if care is received out-of-network.
- There are some non-hospital providers with low charges for care. This means your maximum financial risk is low.
- Seek care with low charges to pay less and assume less money risk
(right hand price tag)
- The discount price
- The amount that’s really paid at the "counter"
- Default price tag shown is Medicare fee for service payment
- Medicare is the largest payer of health care, making it the only gold standard pricing in the US
- Paying Medicare plus 20% as a cash price will save you much more than paying a “discount” price off the usually very high retail price
