Healthcare Plan Divides Physicians, Employers Over Cost of Care

Share on Facebook
Conflict is developing between Cincinnati-area employers and physicians over a new health plan designed to save employers money at the cost of hospital balance billing, according to USA Today.

The plan is called TrueCost, and nine employers with more than 5,000 employees have signed on so far to reduce their costs and receive a provider bonus, according to the report.

However, some hospitals and physicians are saying they will not honor the plan because they didn't negotiate the payments. TrueCost directly competes with HealthSpan, Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield and Humana.
