If you’re sick, call your doctor, not your health insurer! More Americans are ditching the broken insurance model, instead choosing to enter private doctor-patient “direct primary care” agreements. Dr. Chad Savage’s start as low as $39 per month, granting patients 24/7 access to care in-person or digitally for preventive care services and basic tests (75 percent of all health care).
Savage joined Health Care News Managing Editor Michael Hamilton on today’s HCN Podcast to explain how direct primary care providers can afford to offer top-flight care for low- and middle-income patients … without insurance. Savage also distinguished direct primary care from a model with which it is often confused: the uber-expensive “concierge medicine.”
Savage is one of the newest members of The Heartland Institute’s prestigious Board of Policy Advisors.
