Radio is Effective for Healthcare Advertising
Insurance Influences Medical Care Choices
New York, NY – August 13, 2014 – When it comes to which type of advertising influences healthcare choices, radio was ranked as the most effective medium – especially among 25-44 year olds – according to findings from RAB's F.C.T. Report. In addition, when it comes to medical care decisions, it is insurance that outranks all other choices – including medical referrals
"With changes in medical and insurance coverage top of mind with consumers, this reports confirms radio’s ability as a powerful medium to influence their selection of where and who will provide them with medical services," stated Erica Farber, RAB President and CEO. "Marketers in this category who are trying to reach the 25-44 year olds should look to radio to communicate to this target group."

And while a large portion of the respondents are aware of the Affordable Care Act, there are still many that do not understand the Act. The F.C.T. Report survey was conducted from May 1 to May 22, 2014, and queried over 9,000 respondents aged 18+ about their preferences in handling their healthcare needs.
