Consumer Educational Guide

HFMA has developed a guide to help consumers understand where to get answers to their questions about healthcare prices, compare prices among providers, and manage their out-of-pocket costs. Hospitals, physician practices, payers, and others are encouraged to share this resource with consumers. 

Understanding Healthcare Prices: A Consumer Guide
Understanding Healthcare Prices: A Consumer Guide (Spanish)

Post the guides on your organization's website and incorporate it in pre-procedure planning with patients. No permission is needed. Please notify our Healthcare Financial Practices team of your plans to post the guides so dissemination can be tracked.
