High HealthCare Costs: Have you used concierge medical/subscription or direct primary care?

Have you used concierge medical/subscription primary care or otherwise known as direct primary care personally or for your business?  (Currently something I have looked at as an employee benefit/alternative to medical insurance).

 

For me,  I can offer direct primary care through a local Dr.'s Office for my employees at the cost of 75$ per month per employee.  This would open them up for unlimited primary care services for routine or acute medical visits. No copays no insurance billing etc.

 

I did a survey in my stores to see what my employee's thought/knew about it and I will open it up here for anyone who wants to try taking the survey or viewing the questions I asked.  75% of my employees were interested in it.

 

Employee Survey for Interest in Direct Primary Care 

 

"Direct primary care (DPC), also known as concierge medical care, is a healthcare model where patients pay a fixed monthly or annual fee directly to their primary care provider for a range of medical services, bypassing traditional insurance. This model emphasizes a personalized, accessible, and proactive approach to healthcare, often including same-day or next-day appointments, extended visits, and direct communication with the physician." 

 

This is the physician I have personally talked to and have been looking at using:

Let me know what you think, have you tried it, and I will share some really cool/sneaky benefits I discovered in this search.  I just imagine how good of a recruiting tool for small business employees this would be even if I don't subsidize it for my staff.

 

P.S.

DONT BE SHY!!  This is my first QotW, but I feel this is a really really important area.  Workers can't work sick and taking care of your people is extremely important.

This actually sounds like a GREAT DEAL. I wish we could do something like this because right now we're paying $1200 per person for insurance- and that's WITH a deductible.

 

It's a great price for an awesome service.

@DinaLRosenberg I would just google direct primary care in your city and unless you are really small, you should have some providers.  I think it fills the need for the high deductible or no copay available niche.  I called it the subscription service of healthcare lol.
