Rolling the Deductable Dice
We are being over run by patients who were advised to have an elective procedure who were waiting to see if they were going to meet their deductibles. (rolling the dice) Now they are finding out that their deductibles and out of pocket costs are going way up next year so they want everything done between now and the end of the year. This seems to happen every year, but this year it is magnified by the huge jump in costs. In our area the deductibles and out of pocket costs are doubling and patients are panicking. Welcome to Obamacare.
