"The field of concierge medicine and direct primary care is still relatively young but the ideology pre-dates the telephone and even the Revolutionary War ... whereby a doctor comes to your aid, day or night, there's no-copay, deductible or appointment required," says Michael Tetreault, Editor of Concierge Medicine Today. "Concierge Medicine physicians and direct-pay doctors stand in the gap for you. They're reducing hospitalizations significantly, compatible with nearly every insurance plan in America and people are saving more money on their healthcare costs each year. More people are enrolling in high-deductible health insurance plans that cover major, unforeseen events, leaving the everyday expenses to the consumer-just like auto and homeowners' insurance."
People typically choose a doctor based on a personal recommendation of a trusted friend or relative. The Patients Guide To Concierge Medicine and Affordable Direct-Pay Healthcare is available to help patients decide for themselves if this model of healthcare meets their needs. Regardless of what they might have heard or already know, this publication can help guide them through the decision-making process of choosing their next doctor.
"This book will educate healthcare consumers about the benefits, value and cost and help them to understand the role and responsibilities of a concierge doctor." adds Catherine Sykes, co-author. "It gives people the tools and information they need to make an informed decision and find a doctor in order to get the best results. The Affordable Care Act will enable self-employed and self-insured individuals and companies to move their coverage to these doctors in a faster, more timely manner. With the introduction of mandated health insurance coverage, long lines at the doctor's office and the uncertainty of keeping their physician, choosing a concierge doctor or direct-pay physician is a real, affordable and simple option for the families, companies and individuals who will be looking. This book is the first step to understanding this new form of healthcare."
