PPO “Discounts” Mean Nothing – Only Dummies Remain Enamored

My Discounts Are Better Than Yours Because My Boss Told Me So

“As we all know discounts are really no longer a relevant method in determining whether a network is “good” or not” – Jeff Bernhard

Discounts are soon to be officially dead in the broker and consultant community for the purchasing health care for Employers.  What is relevant is total cost, unit cost and the quality/safety metrics for the facilities used by your covered lives.   All employees, and dependants, should use top rated hospitals for quality. Billable charges and patient safety have no correlation as you will see here:  www.hospitalsafetygrade.org .

Have some fun and see where your local hospitals rank from a quality and safety perspective!
