This is a white paper from Optum and it’s about 18- to 25-year-olds and how they present a new challenge to the healthcare system. It focuses on Florida and the average amount spent on each member when admitted into an Out Of Network facility vs and In Network facility. In the article they point out when a young person leaves their home it is “often not the most appropriate or effective settings for treatment” and we know that a lot of insurance companies have a facilities in Florida under a microscope. I’m sure changes are coming soon for those who travel to get care, if not sent by an employer, at an out of state facility.
