We accomplish our goal via a membership model for health care, with children paying $10/month and adult memberships starting at $49/month. Patients, or members, can call me, text me or email me anytime. They can be seen in the office anytime without a copay.
In addition, we get wholesale medications, at-cost labs, and at-cost imaging services for our members. We saved one of our members $1,632 on one test. He needed an MRI of the Cervical spine. 5 years ago, he paid $2,000 for the test, which is the insurance-based price. We have a contract to get that same test for $368, which becomes a savings of $1,632. Our small pharmacy in our office has saved our members thousands of dollars on everything from blood pressure medications, anti-depressants, diabetic drugs, and more.
Finally, our lab prices are unreal. We check a complete blood count with differential for $4 (aka a CBC). If you have this CBC performed at the hospital, your insurance will be billed about $100. Our Lipid Panel costs $6.55 while the same test can run for $120 via your insurance.
This is how we're making health care affordable, accessible and sustainable. We put an end to out-of-control pricing that is causing so many problems for everyday people and their families.
Thanks so much for reading and watching!
