ASC’S Provide $38 Billion in Savings

A study released in June 2016 shows ASC's currently reduce private health insurance spending by $38 billion each year.  That study concludes that $5 billion of that savings goes directly to patients through lower deductibles and co-insurance payments.  These results come from an analysis of more than 400,000 private health insurance claims from across the country conducted by Healthcare Bluebook, a national provider of quality and cost data for health care services.
