Physician’s Weekly and Dr. Linda Girgis hosted their continuing #PWChat series on Wednesday, June 21. The topic discussed was the increasing costs in healthcare, and what the biggest drivers of those increases are.

Additional field experts, along with interested patients, talked about a variety of subjects surrounding this topic, which included: how healthcare costs have changed in recent years, what clinician-specific factors have helped drive up healthcare costs, the biggest patient-specific contributors to increased healthcare costs, the role health insurance companies have played in driving up healthcare costs, and more.
