Mission

Mission

Nearly everyone who receives healthcare in the United States is at risk of receiving care that is so expensive it threatens their financial security.

This is not solely due to the design or generosity of insurance. In 2019, clinicians and patients often have many options in developing care plans–not only in deciding what care is needed, but where and when it should be received. Two patients with the same needs, same insurance, and same market rates for services can bear significantly different financial burdens to achieve the same outcomes, all based on the decisions they make with their clinicians. 

At Costs of Care, we curate insights from people all over the world at the frontlines of healthcare delivery to help clinicians and health systems deliver better care at lower cost.
