You may not have thought about it, but if you spend more than $250 a month on spa services at one of the nation’s largest health care providers, you’re probably paying a premium.
In a recent report, the American Hospital Association (AHA) found that a massage therapist can cost $6,800 to $11,100 per year at some of America’s largest providers of home care.
And the cost of home health care services has risen rapidly in the past two decades, according to the AHA.
And the problem isn’t limited to a few pricey centers and facilities.
The AHA reports that nearly half of American adults say they are at least somewhat likely to visit a home health aide, which is up from 30% a decade ago.
And it’s not just home health aides.
Nearly 70% of Americans say they use home health services.
And for many people, the cost is not just a burden, it’s a burden that can have a negative impact on their health.
In the ABA’s survey of 1,500 adults, one in five said that having to pay for a home care visit can impact their ability to get a high-quality job, while nearly a quarter said it could have a significant impact on the amount of time they spend with family members.
To address the growing burden of home medical care costs, the AEA recently released a study that showed how some people can reduce the amount they pay for home care by spending $50 a month less on health insurance.
And that can save up to $30,000 a year, according the AFA.
The AHA’s survey found that nearly two-thirds of those surveyed had a personal savings account that could be used to reduce their spending on home care costs.
But not all of those people would do it.
A majority of people surveyed said that they would consider paying more for care, but would be more likely to do so if the care they paid for was covered under their employer’s plan.
The number of people saying that their health insurance would cover home care had fallen from 60% in 2005 to 46% in 2010.
The problem with paying for care is that most of us do not have health insurance, so there is a financial burden to pay.
The cost of caring for the elderly is also rising.
According to a report by the Kaiser Family Foundation, nearly 40% of people 65 and older in 2015 had at least one chronic health condition that was treatable by a physician.
That is an increase of about 50 million people since the 1970s.
And those are people who are already getting a lot of care, and the cost for care to keep those people healthy and happy.
So what can we do to lower the cost and improve the quality of care we receive?
The AFA is launching a national survey to help us find ways to cut back on the cost, while at the same time ensuring that we get the best care we can afford.
If you are a home or home health professional who has had to choose between having to take on the burden of high care costs or cutting back on home health benefits, you can take part in the survey.
You can take the survey here, and then you can submit your answers using the form below.
The survey is open to anyone with a household income of less than $100,000 and is conducted through the Kaiser Health Tracking System.
You can also use the survey to send your own feedback.
The results of the survey will be used in a forthcoming report by Kaiser and AHA that will provide further details on the impact of home and home health costs on health.
If you or a loved one has a chronic health problem and you have questions about the survey, please contact Laura Hennig, Senior Vice President, Program Development and Finance, Kaiser Permanente, at 1-877-848-9333 or [email protected]
