Bloomberg did an article about how concierge medicine is booming during Covid. Really? What about DPC? Here is the cost of concierge care:
Concierge medicine requires patients to pay an annual fee that averages $2,500 to $3,000, which buys 24/7 access to their physician, same-day appointments, and unlimited visits, according to the American College of Private Physicians. Patients still need insurance for emergency room visits or specialist visits, as well as medication.
That is double or triple what DPC docs pay and even less if they get a family deal. And these concierge docs still bill insurance. Ugh!!
