Financial tech adviser InstaMed compiles data about health care payment trends.
Years of inaction, followed by the COVID-19 pandemic, made it difficult for physicians and other health care providers to get paid last year.
Physicians and other providers, patients, and payers all lent perspectives to “Trends in Healthcare Payments.” The 13th annual report is based on 2022 data by InstaMed, a financial technology company that focuses on medical spending.
The report is filed “to start a conversation about the state of healthcare payments and shine a light on the trends that need the industry’s focus.” This year, it might not be a welcome conversation.
Here’s what physicians and other health care providers are saying about getting paid – or not getting paid. With the first quarter of 2023 nearly done, are those trends holding true? How many other physicians and health care providers are listing the same issues?
Data comes from original research of InstaMed and parent company JPMorgan Chase Bank N.A., and other analysts including KaufmanHall, KFF, Gallup, Medscape, and CVS Health.
