2013 National Health Insurer Report Card

Source: American Medical Association, 2013

From the press release:
Patients are responsible for nearly one-quarter of the medical bill, according to the findings released today from the AMA’s sixth annual check-up of health insurers and their patterns for processing and paying medical claims. For the first time, the AMA’s National Health Insurer Report Card examined the portion of health care expenses that patients are responsible for through copays, deductibles and coinsurance. During Feb. and March of this year, patients paid an average 23.6 percent of the amount that health insurers set for paying physicians.
