“Blue Cross PPO plans have a 5-9% lower total cost of care over the competitor’s average. Nationally, Blue Cross PPO members have access to 95% of doctors and 96% of hospitals.”
If true, 95% of all medical caregivers are making less money than they otherwise could. So how do they make up the difference? Ahhhhh……….it’s fee-for-service! The more services, the more fees to be earned.
