Private Medicine

Health Insurance Will Become More Expensive for Businesses, Families & Individuals resulting in fewer people having health insurance.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH MEDICINE TODAY?

Your medical care can now be described as reactive, confusing, impersonal, and disjointed. The autonomy your physician once enjoyed as a medical professional is now gone. Physicians have been forced onto a “gerbil wheel”, seeing more patients in less time, inundated with bureaucracy, eligibility rules, denials, and increased overhead – resulting in less time and attention than you need – and deserve.

Dr. Carol Rupe is helping to change the game, by providing more choice, time and attention for you as a private,

Primary care medicine is evolving towards more personalized medical care for individuals and families.  This is in contrast to systemized, mass market medical care being put into place by larger, more bureaucratic organizations.  More personalized care tends to fall into two categories:  Concierge Medicine and Direct Pay Medicine.

CONCIERGE MEDICAL PRACTICES

Concierge medical practices have membership fees ranging between $ 1,500 and $ 2,700 per member, per year plus filing health insurance claims for any medical visits. Concierge medical practices typically allocate twice the amount of time allowed per patient visit. A critical question is whether the patient needs the double time or not - and the extra expense.

DIRECT PAY MEDICAL PRACTICES

Direct pay medical practices offer more personalized services, tend have lower annual fees, and tend NOT to participate in health insurance plans.
