Tebra surveyed 800 Americans and 200 healthcare professionals to understand how economic ups and downs impact healthcare affordability and access. One in 4 healthcare professionals surveyed are concerned about rising healthcare costs for patients, and nearly 2 in 3 have observed an increase in patients skipping or delaying appointments due to costs. This often leads patients to delay necessary care, negatively impacting health outcomes. 

To surmount these challenges, providers should have transparent conversations with patients about costs and financial assistance programs, create payment plans, and utilize technology to offer telehealth visits when appropriate.
