Finally the medical profession is taking responsibility for providing affordable healthcare to their patients.
There is a doctor in the Clearwater/Tampa Bay Florida area that has taken the bull by the horns and will forever change how primary/preventative/routine/minor surgery healthcare is delivered.
His plan is quite simple.
A single person pays the doctor $160 per month for pre-paid Doctor's Care. A household of two adults and 4 children pay $315 per month.
It's that simple. Then when you need the doctor you go to your doctor and pay nothing. No co-pay. No claim forms.
THIS IS NOT MEDICAL INSURANCE. It's a pre-paid fee for service plan.
This is the way it should be.
The Doctor and his/her patient should come to agreement on the services provided and fee charged for those services and totally eliminate the third party payor system known as the insurance company.
I'm on this plan and I can tell you I don't even miss $160 bucks per month and there's something quite refreshing about going to the doctor and paying NOTHING when you leave and getting NO BILL.
The plan is not perfect but it's a start in the right direction.
The cost of catastrophic medical expenses still need to be addressed in case of a serious hospitalization. This is where hospitals need to developed affordable payment plans and or the person carry high deductible major medical coverage.
