Help stop health insurance out of pocket cost shock2018-01-18T15:16:59+00:00

A massive rise in the number of reported cases of  health insurance “out of pocket cost shock” has led to an increase in hospital and surgery costs to patients, rising health insurance premiums and payouts from health insurers for costly operations.

We are campaigning for patients to be given full disclosure about all out of pocket costs and the option to discuss alternatives to surgery and of receiving a second opinion before surgery takes place. The decision to have surgery should not be just left up to your doctor – it should be a shared decision with the patient.

Sign up to offer your support, receive campaign news and help us stop out of pocket cost shock.
