Affordability: Means Accessible Care!
Affordability is Important for routine medical care and disease prevention!
* The cost of doctor visits can be a barrier:
* Many costs of chronic disease care can exceed what those without insurance can afford. These include:
* The cost of medication.
* The cost of doctor visits
* The cost diagnostic laboratory testing.
The cost of medical care is a big deal.
People have lost their homes due to medical bills. And during this recession, it’s even worse.
People in the US routinely postpone medical care because of the cost.
So while I am focused on accurately diagnosing your disease and prescribing essential medication, I can’t lose sight of the costs to you.
All of my effort, logic, dedication, training and energy are completely undone if you cannot afford a consultation with me in the first place.
My commitment in the design of Wellivery is to keep the price you pay for visits with me, fair and reasonable.
I do not control the cost of medicine but will do all I can to find discounted medication for my patients.
So many of my patients do not have health insurance.
Because of that, they have to find the best value for their medical care.
That means getting the most for the least.
Even patients with high-deductible health insurance have to pay out-of-pocket until their deductible is met. So they too are interested in the best value.
I am committed to designing a method that my patients can actually use.
A method they can AFFORD!
A method that keeps them relaxed, sleeping soundly, and striding through their days with new confidence in managing their disease.
Wellivery is that method!
