In the last several years, a growing awareness of the relationship between socio-economic factors and health outcomes has emerged within the larger healthcare industry. Different segments of societal life such as employment, education or geographic location are no longer seen as distinct or separate from healthcare.
When it comes to healthcare payment plans, consumer priorities have changed. Provider loyalty is no longer a driving force for many. Instead, consumers prefer financial transparency, flexible payment plans, and affordable monthly payments.
