Hospital Costs - On-Demand Email Header

It’s no secret that hospital charges are skyrocketing. What’s worse is that these charges are disproportionate to actual hospital costs and that patients are often on the hook for outrageous medical bills that can result in extraordinary collection actions (ECAs) against them.

Vitori Health is committed to helping brokers, employers, and plan members understand and challenge this unfortunate dynamic. Please watch our 30-minute on-demand webinar with prominent healthcare and ERISA attorney, Doug Aldeen.

Doug shares timely and actionable insights to avoid overpaying and help you:

  • Compare hospital charges relative to their costs
  • Eliminate patient and plan costs for eligible patients using hospital Patient Financial Assistance Programs (FAPs)
  • Ensure non-profit hospitals provide patient financial assistance as mandated by Section 501(r) of the Internal Revenue Code
  • Navigate the changing reimbursement landscape

Watch now and learn how you can make a difference by protecting members and employer health plans from egregious hospital charges.
