A Viable Solution For Doctors and Patients to the Third-Party Payer Mess: Concierge Medicine
by Kevin S. Little, Health Care Law Blog, June 2, 2013
The concierge practice of medicine is the wave of the future. This is very good news for the American consumer and tax payer. As the price tag for Medicare has increased, so has the pressure on federal lawmakers to do something to avoid the looming fiscal disaster that attends rising health care costs. Since the U.S. Taxpayer demands that Medicare costs somehow be contained while, ironically, the U.S. Voter (same person, different hat) views Medicare as a sacrosanct entitlement to consume health care, the lawmaker "solution" has thus far focused the cost-cutting pressure on the supply side of health care, including cutting physician reimbursement.
