Physicians: Boost patient compliance by starting cost conversation
The average annual health cost for a family of four in the U.S. has now reached $24,671, according to the latest Milliman Medical Index. That's a 6.3 percent increase over the past year, and the annual cost for a typical family has nearly tripled since 2001. It's of little surprise, then, that a recent awareness campaign hosted on social network Inspire revealed that roughly 20 percent of more than 700 respondents said they wished their doctors knew about their health cost burden.
