Freebies and Waivers of Co-Payment

There are a number of rules that apply to offering free items or services to patients or waiving their copay. These rules were generally created to avoid over utilization in a fee for service world. As we move toward population health and value based payment, some of the rules have evolved to support the movement from volume to value in healthcare. Tune in to this week’s episode as we dive into what you can do, what you should avoid, and the reason behind these regulations. We are joined by one of our VillageMD experts, Megan Harkins, who helps break these regulations down.
