The price of healthcare is only rising and the costs are not decreasing anytime soon. It has been one of the biggest problems and debates for the past 20 years!
Big tech is throwing hundreds of millions of dollars in trying to disrupt how healthcare is delivered by promising to decrease costs. Although a noble and welcome intent, I’m very skeptical it will decrease healthcare spending. At what cost? Quality of care?
The problem is, healthcare has many interests and hands in the delivery of care, which creates inefficiencies that are often not visible to patients. That why healthcare is very slow to change and adapt, not to mention all the laws and regulation.
The reason why healthcare is so expensive is pretty simple. There are too many hands in the pot who are trying to take a piece of a $185 billion market. In any business, the easiest way to make things more efficient is the remove the middle man. There-in lies part of the answer: Direct Primary Care.
Direct Primary Care is the epitome of the doctor-patient relationship. When you take everything away, what do you have left with in the healthcare conversation? 1. The patient that needs care, and 2. the physician giving the care.
Membership to a direct primary care practice costs less than a Frappuccino from Starbucks everyday for a month. No co-pays. Laceration repairs are included with membership. Unlimited visits. When purchasing medications from a direct primary care practice, two months of certain hypertension medications (60 tablets) can be had for $0.89!!! Even with the bells-and-whistles insurance plan, you’ll still be paying a $5.00 co-pay per prescription.
