Is Concierge Medicine Worth It?
If you want to vastly improve your physician or patient relationship, SignatureMD is committed to assisting you. As the field of private medicine has drastically changed in the last 30 years, the outcome has been less than optimal for either the doctor or the patient.
Money is the biggest misconception about SignatureMD concierge care, also known as personalized medicine.
The single greatest mistake made by patients is that a private physician is a perk for the rich.
Certainly there are many practices in the USA Network “Royal Pains” television show that fashion their services to the needs of executives and the ultra wealthy. But there are excellent private physicians who offer their services on incredibly affordable terms to the insured and uninsured and other perfectly ordinary people who want to save money and get better access to their own doctor.
SignatureMD Personalized Care program delivers a way to stop over-spending on health insurance while at the same time manage your emerging health risks with top-of-the-line wellness diagnostics and annual executive checkups.
Doctors offices are small businesses that have fixed and escalating costs based on hospital and insurance volatility. The cost of employing a staff and loan for education that must be recouped is a heavy load, and no one wants to see their income dwindle as their work is increased thanks to new government rules.
A large portion of a doctor’s practice revenue is spent on the administrative overhead for insurance and patient billing alone!
Private medicine solves this problem for your doctor, as many accept standard insurance. Many negotiate directly now with patients bypassing insurance companies altogether, saving time for the doctor, out-of-pocket costs for a patient and easing the crush of having an army of billers in the back office.
SignatureMD doctors provide tiered models that enable doctors to practice medicine that better serves your medical needs and their professional vision at the same time.
The direct primary care business plan is different from other concierge plans, as direct primary care is only one option under the larger concierge care umbrella. SignatureMD concierge medical offices still take insurance and charge a reasonable annual fee broken up quarterly to help limit the number of patients Doctors need to see. These practices provide an increased level of care. SignatureMD concierge practices even offer patients the option to have their doctor come to them or the ability to contact their doctor twenty four hours a day seven days a week.
SignatureMD doctors are the best medics in each market, and dispense convenient and thorough medical care to patients by improving the quality of patient care and care coordination; strengthening and empowering the bond between patients and their physicians and reducing the cost of health care though aggressive wellness plans to safeguard patients from health risks and chronic conditions.
SignatureMD medicine is part of a movement will forever change American health care by restoring the doctor-patient relationship of times past – back when private doctors were not dictated to by insurance company policies and government restrictions.
