The Increasing Costs of Healthcare


If you are like most Oklahomans, there’s a good chance that you are tired of rising insurance premiums with little to no actual support provided from the provider once the policy is needed. However, you may also be surprised to learn that healthcare costs are expected to rise nearly 5.5% on average each year until they culminate in $6 trillion by 2027.  Unfortunately, these continually increasing costs of health care have made it hard for many individuals or their families to get the quality of care they need or deserve.

One of the main reasons that healthcare costs continue to increase is based on government policies. For instance, since the development of both the Medicare and Medicaid programs, providers have had to continually increase prices to accommodate these programs that help others without insurance.  However, you may be surprised to learn that more than just government involvement has made healthcare costs rise. In fact, these costs have steadily been rising for decades with little or no changes from the government involved in the process.

In an effort to help alleviate some of the stress associated with the increasing costs of healthcare in Oklahoma, ReRun Medical is working to provide affordable medical equipment to families or individuals in need. If you are looking for medical equipment but are unable to meet the steep costs associated with it, we encourage you to browse our inventory to see what may be available at the current time to help.
