10 Payers With the Lowest Provider Collection Burden

Last week, cloud-based software services provider athenahealth released its 2014 PayerView Report, which leverages the company's data to provide insight into provider-payer relationships.

The report ranks healthcare payers based on various metrics, including provider collection burden — the percentage of allowed charges transferred from the primary insurer to the next responsible party, including coinsurance, deductibles and other transfers, such as non-covered services. According to the report, these are the 10 payers in the nation with the lowest provider collection burden percentages.

1. Boston Medical Center HealthNet Plan (0.6 percent)
