Most people don't realize what we really have for medical insurance is catastrophic insurance. On average, we pay $100 to $400 per paycheck for our insurance premiums, and are required to pay a deductible of $500 to $6,000 before insurance kicks in. In addition, we are paying 10%-30% of what is called co-Insurance. This means we are responsible for paying 10%-30% of the overall office visit bill even after the deductible is paid. Why do we pay so much and why do healthcare costs rising? Answer: Insurance Companies, on average insurance companies get 42 cents on each dollar spent in healthcare.
What does this get us? A quick 10-minute visit with a provider, who is rushed to get to the next patient. Medicine is not supposed to be this way, you do not have to pay deductibles and co-insurance to the insurance companies and get a 10-minute visit with little access to your provider. We have been practicing primary care for over 10 years and after researching, we have found a better way… Direct Primary Care!
Direct Primary Care
The Direct Primary Care Model allows a provider-patient relationship. It allows us to spend time with our patients; more time equals better medical care. Our patients know us well and we know them. The patient has access to their provider and not a call center. Primary Care offices across the country are changing the way they practice and lowering costs to the patient with the Direct Primary Care movement.
Don’t settle, SELECT and RE-CONNECT with your healthcare provider.
