Getting your infusion or injection therapy done at one of our PURE locations offers significant advantages over the hospital.
For one, our facilities are focused exclusively on infusions and injections — this means that every supervising physician, nurse, and other staff member has the expertise to guide you through all aspects of your treatment in a private suite rather than one large room. Going to one of our PURE locations means less hassle in parking, and not having to navigate through a complex, multi-building hospital to get to your treatment location (which unfortunately will generally be administered in one big room which was designed by an actuary – we love actuaries but just not for designing rooms which require private space and a spa-like atmosphere).
More importantly, your treatment costs at one of our PURE locations are significantly lower than the same treatment provided at a hospital, and with most insurance providers, you’ll also have a much lower copay — this will save you thousands of dollars every year.
Sounds too good to be true? Don’t take our word for it.
Under the Hospital Price Transparency and Disclosure Act of 2018, hospitals are required to post their prices for their standard services on their website (including infusion and injection therapies). If you research your local hospital, you’ll find that hospitals are often over-charging your private insurance company more than 200 times than the Medicare rates for the same medical services (private insurance companies have been found to be overpaying hospitals from the range from 150 percent of Medicare rates at the low end to 350 to 400-plus percent at the high end) (see Rand Corporation -Prices Paid to Hospitals by Private Health Plans – 2019).
Ultimately, by making private insurance companies overpay for the same medical services (while also delivering a lower clinical experience – see the same Rand study cited above), we each end up paying more for healthcare as our insurance premiums go up each year (leaving less of our hard-earned money in our pockets). This is why private insurance companies love PURE as we save you and them money. Thus, at PURE, we work with your insurance companies to reduce costs relating to your infusion and injection therapies for all those involved.
