More Doctors Offer Direct-Pay Healthcare

Sovereign Solutions Editor’s Note:

Are you looking for healthcare solutions? Perhaps more quality, comprehensive care and, at the same time, lower overall cost?

Well, there is a growing trend from the healthcare practitioner community to kick out those between you and those that actually provide care services. They are offering you quite a valuable solution, if so you discover and comprehend it. 

The particular solution I refer to is direct-pay healthcare providers.

The featured article explains direct-pay healthcare in more detail, but in short, direct-pay healthcare basically means that cumbersome third party payers and related regulatory agencies, with their myriad of rules, regulations, ambiguities, mandates, and other bureaucratic non-value added onerous roadblocks are BYPASSED.

Direct-pay healthcare offers you potentially a get-out-of-jail-free pass from the insane byzantine healthcare system that plunders from so many! Who WOULDN’T want to escape this black hole?

Direct-pay healthcare also does what the 3rd party billing cycle system adamantly refuses to do and in fact cannot do, lest it ruin itself:establish price discovery, or, in other words, create and sustain a stable, well-functioning, transparent, and competitive pricing system!

Do YOU know what you pay for ANYTHING in regards to your healthcare services?

Well, direct-pay healthcare service practitioners help with this!

Paired with ACTUAL, true insurance, which reduces or eliminates harm brought about by unexpected or unlikely catastrophic events, you can and will see dramatically lowered healthcare-related costs and more transparent pricing.

It also helps out healthcare practitioners that truly want to offer superior care at affordable prices.

You DO know that healthcare practitioners are leaving practices in droves, right? Ever wonder why? Kicking out those that fundamentally do not add value to care makes sense for both the patient and the patient’s healthcare practitioners, or those that actually provide direct care service.

Now, that’s what I call win/win!

The featured article details how direct-pay healthcare is expanding. More healthcare service practitioners offer or are moving towards offering direct-pay healthcare. 

Despite all of the negative healthcare related news out there, there are things going on such as this general direct-pay healthcare phenomenon that augers well for you and me and practitioners of care. 

The only losers will be the Liars, Looters, and Losers that game systems as well as actually create, sustain and add on to systems with the purpose to game you and me! These types seek to impose obstacles in order to get what they want. I think we can agree that they will only get what is coming to them.

I feel no guilt and offer no pity if direct-pay healthcare payment systems topple over those that only gain from another’s loss: that’s not win/win–that’s not true economics. More on true economics another time.

FEATURED CONTENT

WILMINGTON, Del. — Cristy Beckman, who suffers from chronic pain in her spine and osteoarthritis, spent six hours in a doctor’s crowded waiting room in severe pain.

That was enough, she decided. It was time to make a drastic change in how she was treated.

At about the same time, Dr. Christina Bovelsky opened Peachtree Family Medicine in downtown Middletown, Del., with a unique approach to medicine.

Instead of dealing with traditional insurance, co-pays and deductibles, her patients pay a one-year membership fee that includes an annual physical exam and between two and four office visits. Small procedures such as nebulizer treatments, strep tests and electrocardiograms are included.

Beckman, 46, became one of Bovelsky’s first patients.

“There’s an absolute peace of mind that someone is looking after your healthcare,” Beckman said. “I don’t think there’s any way I could do something different.”

Nationally, more health care providers are embracing the direct-pay, or “concierge medicine,” model.

A Physicians’ Foundation 2014 survey found 7 percent of doctors run a direct-pay practice and another 13 percent plan to transition to some form of direct-pay model.

Most of Bovelsky’s patients still have insurance for additional procedures and tests not covered by the doctor’s fees, such as vaccines and lab work.

Health care providers say they are transitioning to direct-pay medicine because they are able to spend more time with fewer patients, which allows them to drill down to the cause of a medical issue instead of ordering extra tests. The doctors are also more readily available to patients after hours.
