A Growing Trend: Concierge Practices

Posted by SpectraCell Laboratories, Inc. on Wed, Apr 06, 2011 @ 01:10 PM

PhysiciansConcierge medicine is a relationship between a patient and a primary care physician in which the patient pays an annual fee or retainer. This may or may not be in addition to other charges.

This is a growing alternative to the conventional practice for many reasons: 

  • Physicians are able to freely advise patients as they deem necessary, and to the best of their ability.
  • Patients receive peace of mind and understand that their doctor is providing impartial and wholly objective advice.
  • Physicians have low overhead costs from not having to hassle with insurance companies. These costs are paid by cash via their patient base.  
  • This revenue stream is a predictable cash flow for physicians
  • Physicians are generally more profitable while also being less expensive to the patients because of the fact that both do not have to go through insurance companies.
  • Physicians can see fewer patients and have more personalized time with them.
