Healthcare Dive writes: Cost matters to patients just as much as a doctor’s reputation when choosing where to get care, according to a new VisitPay report on how consumers seek and pay for health services. In an online survey of 1,734 U.S. adults, insurance was the top consideration in choosing where to receive treatment (84%), followed by reputation of the health system (75%) and location (69%). Cost and physician reputation tied at 66% each. When assessing overall satisfaction with a doctor or health system, 65% of respondents said cost was a major influence.
