I’ve been following the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons for some time now. Today, while perusing through their site, I came across this handy list of cash and direct pay friendly practices! This is by far the most comprehensive list I have come across, and it even includes specialty care too. To date, there are 1008 healthcare providers on the list, which is by default, sorted by state. If you have high deductible insurance, this could be a good place to shop for care, especially if your deductible is causing you to delay care.
Wow, I’m ecstatic about sharing more about Direct Primary Care with the public, a concept that’s just starting to make its debut. Over the course of the past few weeks, I’ve been introduced to more and more transparent pricing models, like the one offered by Trinity Direct Primary Care.
But Trinity doesn’t stop at basic services. They also offer a premium package to differentiate themselves that includes a unique gym membership, meal planning, wellness coaching, and biblical counseling.
Leave it to the free market to innovate this way. A single payer system could never be this creative. What’s more, Trinity Direct Primary Care services start at just $30/mo.
What are your health care spending priorities? If catastrophic health insurance were available and affordable, do you think we could make Direct Primary Care work for the masses? I think the biggest objection we currently have to DPC is the fact that our current health care system forbids us from the ability to purchase low cost catastrophe insurance. What can we do as a society to fix this problem?
