Man can January be challenging! But not in our Practice where it is Radiant Health Month! We have dedicated some extra time and help the next few days during Radiant Health Month including the Monday holiday just to help you and your family!
Before I get to that though, I'd like to explain more about why our Family & Lifestyle Medicine Practice is DPC or what is now known as Direct Primary Care. Here are some true stories from our prior years in health care:
1. We send patient Sandy out for important for lab tests. Turns out, an insurance company decides the tests were not "Medically Necessary". Patient gets a bill for non covered services for about $300. Keep in mind, the patient had insurance, so that is what they wanted billed for "payment".
Now it turns these very same labs could have been ordered outside insurance, and the patient payment would be about 1/4 the cost of the current bill.
2. Jane goes to the hospital, has an MRI done there. Turns out the bill was well over $4000, billed to Jane due to a "deductible" Her husband Jim needs an MRI, we order it for him at a private center as direct pay, and guess how much his bill was? Under $700.
3, Lastly and now an every day occurrence, Sally needs to see her PCP because of something discovered on a recent exam. Sally calls PCP. Is told, "...it's 6 weeks if you'll see a nurse, or its about 12 weeks to see the doctor." Or the best one yet get "Primary Care" without a Physician!!!
Should I go on?
Turns out, the average patient now pays well over $2400/year out of their own pocket for health care every year on top of "insurance benefits".
In a Family this is Per Person!
Now make no mistake, We ALL NEED health insurance in case of accidents and major illnesses.
But for most of our frequent health care needs patients often feel abused with absolutely no end in sight.

Specialty care, manual therapy services, laser/pain management and more new technologies like Softwave are all available options. Never any co-pays or financial surprises often for less than you would be paying for weekly co-pays.
