Concierge Medicine is becoming more and more a viable option to traditional Medicine for both patients and physicians. Establishing direct care with the patient and getting rid of the hassle and focus on the delivery of quality healthcare for a monthly or a yearly charge with 24/7 access to the physician , same day or next day appointment with more time spent with the patient addressing his or her concerns , making care for patients much easier and with positive experience during and after the visit.
We have Concierge Medicine Program serving patients from 20 to 100 years of age in Tampa, Florida with very transparent services and fee schedule as follows
Age 20 -30 years old $ 50 per month, with 10% off for the annual enrollmen
Age 30-40 years of age $ 100 per month with 10% off for annual enrollment
Age 40-65 years of age $ 150 per month with 10% off for annual enrollment
Age 65-100 years of age $ 75 per month with 10% off for annual enrollment as
In addition , we donate 5% back to the Community mostly to fight hunger!
No denial for any pre existing condition, no co payments, no pre authorization, no referral needed, Just come and be treated with dignity and respect you deserve!
These unique combined Internal Medicine( Primary Care) and Cardiovascular disease all together makes it a One Stop Health care which so many patients like and appreciate. When patients see the real value in these services which would save them additional thousands of dollars in healthcare by aborting hospitalization or Emergency Visits in more than 95% of cases as they were managed successfully on out patient basis on top of saving so much on Medications, Blood work and diagnostic testing, so patient really appreciates the services and the savings and you can see our testimonials on Facebook, go to www.brooksvillecariology.com
So when patients do the math, one Visit to Emergency Room average cost about 5 Thousand dollars which will be equivalent to 10 years enrollment for someone between 20 to 30 years of age! and one day Hospitalization average cost 15 to 20 Thousand dollars which will equal to 40 years , yes 40 years of enrollment in my plan for the same age group , and you can do the math for the rest of the various age groups , so when the patients are educated , the decision which they will make during this tough economy will be so easy. This goes to support that Concierge Medicine program that I developed was really developed to help the middle class hard working Americans , and dispel the myth the Concierge Medicine is for the rich! ( not true ) and when you put a few dollars a day less than $ 5 /day to invest in your health would make a great investment compared with what you have to spend elsewhere with emphasis on Disease prevention, Comprehensive Wellness and Stress management.
As Healthcare is going to continue to be driven by consumerism with current impact of social media that makes patients (consumers) more educated about choices in healthcare including Concierge Medicine. A good example of that is the positive impact of Affordable Care Act on the growth of Concierge Medicine as many big corporates such Wall mart, CVS, and soon Target will also provide Concierge Medicine in Retail Clinics as needs grows!
Concierge Medicine allows doctors to concentrate on the practice of medicine and provide a personalized quality services with their patients as they are NOT pressured compared with traditional practice ( usually half number of patients seen per day) , so it is good for the patient and the doctor as well who makes a fair compensation for years of education and training!
In brief , I think there will be further growth in Concierge Medicine in 2015 , It makes sense and that is why some Health Insurance carriers like Cigna made Concierge Medicine available for employees and made it complaint with ACA as it made Direct primary care ( Concierge Medicine) bundled with catastrophic coverage Policy . I welcome any input or opportunity to cooperate with our local Community and beyond as there is so much need out there and we have a good model to share. Have a Happy and Healthy 2015!
