Cathy told me another one of her medical war stories.
She had gone to the ER, knowing she would have to pay the $150 deductible that her insurance required. But weeks later she got a bill for over $600. When she investigated, she found out the ER doctor was not employed by the hospital but was contracted from somewhere else. So her insurance didn’t pay for that doctor seeing her in the ER! She tried to fight it but finally had to give in and pay the bill.
As we talked, Cathy realized that since she can access prompt medical care through my office, she could save herself a couple of those ER visits. And that, in itself, would pay for many months of the DPC (Direct Primary Care) membership.
