ACA Will Test Consumers’ Loyalty to Their Doctors

Half of consumers would switch their doctor if they could save a certain amount in annual health care costs, according to a survey by HealthPocket. Thirty-four percent would switch if they could save $500 to $1,000; eight percent would switch if they could save $1,000 to $2,000; and 8% would switch if they could save $3,000 or more.

Consumers and small employers will face an array of new health plan choices in 2014. Other than cost, one of the key factors in consumers’ selection process is whether their doctor participates in a plan’s provider network. Cost pressures are moving insurers to limit their provider networks. They are seeking to negotiate lower rates to healthcare providers in exchange for a larger volume of patients.

HealthPocket is offering a physician search component on its site at It allows consumers to compare all commercial health plans, Medicare plans and Medicaid programs that their doctor may accept.
