In April, BCBSNC launched a new campaign in hopes of increasing public understanding of what fuels medical costs and to encourage leaders in the health care industry to work together to help bring down surging medical costs. One of their main goals is to reduce administrative costs by 20%.
The material and quality of this unique campaign are different from anything that they have ever worked on before. This campaign recognizes that insurers share in the responsibility to confront soaring medical costs as well as doctors, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, individuals and attorneys. The campaign emphasizes that all of these groups are capable and absolutely must work together to bring down medical costs.
There are also ways that the general public can help control medical costs. For one, they can ask their doctor to prescribe less expensive generic medications. They can also be vigilant about keeping up with medication schedules and treatment plans that their doctor prescribes. Everyone can and should certainly take advantage of preventive care services. And of course getting and staying active and living a healthier lifestyle are extremely important in helping keep costs down.
