 As the healthcare battle continues, doctors are taking matters into their own hands

The GOP’s battle with the Obamacare repeal act has been an up and down struggle between not just Democrats, but itself.

However, many doctors have taken to operating outside of the bounds of control from both the government, and insurance companies. It’s called “direct primary care,” and it allows doctors to establish clinics that run solely on the loyalty of their patients.

The way these clinics work is that a doctor – or group of doctors – will create a clinic that focuses on primary care, and charges its customers a monthly fee that covers all of the basic medical necessities.

This allows doctors to charge far less for not just tests and checkups, but medications as well. The best part? No insurance is required. A $50 monthly fee is all it takes.

  1. Won't work. The 30 to 50 million people who are or will be uninsured, need healthcare and could shell out $50 per month would rather spend it on a Cellphone, cable TV or bling jewelry and whine Free healthcare is a human right.

  2. The lack of a "?" seems to indicate "Really" is an affirmative reply. :)

  3. I agree that healthcare is a right, among the non-enumerated rights included in the Ninth Amendment. But a right is something an individual excercises themselves without government interference or provision. Because If government must provide for that right as many insist, then when is it gonna provide me a mass media platform for my First Amendment right or a common military rifle for my Second Amend right? --Ron W

  4. This works very well! My sister is so covered, and my parents might be so covered.

    I'm doubtful it's truly "less expensive", but it works very well. At any time, day or night, you have a doctor on the ready. And even someone earning 50 or 60K a year could afford it, I think.

    My family (mentioned above) pays more than 50 per month I think. But it's very worthwhile. No waiting time if there's an emergency.

  5. For a younger person this is an ideal setup and would best be combined with a health savings account for eventual things not covered by primary care. Its what most people would want. indyjonesouthere
