The True Cost of A Routine Healthcare Visit

February 2, 2010

Most people, when asked, do not know the cost of a routine doctor visit.  Some say it is the cost of their co-pay, $20 or $25.  In a survey by Harris Interactive, many replied that the cost for the visit was around $95.  In reality, the actual cost for a doctor’s visit is $200. *

Rx medications, gas, parking, tolls, foods, beverages, over-the-counter remedies, and childcare all factor into the final cost. Often, consumers never know what that one simple visit cost because they can’t put all the expenses together.  According to the survey, more than half of those who responded did not know the cost of treatment until it was received (68 percent), and 11 percent revealed they never found out the cost.
