In 2021, we independently polled healthcare consumers and RCM leaders about how patients want to pay their bills and found there is a disconnect between how patients and providers view patient payments and collections.
A few key insights that we learned are:
- Medical bills still rank last to consumers in how they prioritize paying their monthly bills
- 50% of patients overall prefer to make a payment at or before discharge – and not wait to pay until after they receive a statement
- 78% of patients would return to the same hospital if it offered extended payment options
