Cost-of-Care Conversations

This annotated bibliography presents current literature on cost-of-care conversations to provide guidance for further research on improving the frequency and quality of cost-of-care conversations between clinicians and vulnerable patients. Six broad rubrics to the current literature emerged: incidence of cost-of-care conversations in clinical care; barriers to cost-of-care conversations; patient populations that are especially vulnerable to health care cost burden; patient reception and attitudes towards cost-of-care conversations; outcomes of cost-of-care conversations, and how to conduct cost-of-care conversations.
