Physicians and medical groups need to consider the broader implications of price transparency and make informed, strategic decisions to develop transparent defensible pricing strategies and prepare to comply with evolving regulations and marketplace pressures.

The penalties of noncompliance and failure to evolve with market pressure for price transparency will compromise revenue and expose your practice to fines and sanctions or worse... payer contract termination and lost opportunities.

But price transparency has many dimensions. One is the effect on competition. Does your brand align with the prices you charge? Do you have a brand people recognize? Or do you appear to be a commodity just like any other surgeon or specialist in any location? What makes you appear to be worth the price you charge?

3 Focus Areas

Setting Prices

Pricing is a strategic tool that reinforces your brand image and can drive or defend market share. Selling your services through contracted health plans and PPOs at discounted prices without any defensible algorithm can damage your brand and diminish your perceived value!

Is Price Your Only Competitive Advantage?

Are taking the focus from the value you provide as a specialist or surgeon and placing it squarely on your price?

Are you charging too little?

Better margins and stronger brand equity comes from articulating your quality and improving targeting and positioning with patients, employers, and health plans.

Prepare to comply with price transparency regulations and market pressures
