Health Care Costs

healthcarecosts

Health care costs are on the rise again. Without adequate protections in place to ensure affordability for consumers, costs can become a barrier to access. In addition to premiums, consumers also face out-of-pocket costs including deductibles, co-pays, and co-insurance. If they go out-of-network, they can even get surprise bills that are beyond their ability to pay.

At the same time as we advocate for protections to ensure that costs don't create barriers for care and that consumers can make sense of which costs they are responsible for paying, we also need to look at some of the drivers of health care cost growth. As part of our work around advocating for value for consumers, Georgians for a Healthy Future monitors state and federal policy as it relates to affordability and weighs in on behalf of consumers.
