Fine, Dr. Davis.
If I don’t want to deal with all the headaches of MACRA, I should buy my own healthcare. But I don’t have any money for that. None.
What should I do then?
The same thing.
Nearly all of these clinicians have a certain number of slots set aside as “scholarships.” They’re intended specifically for people who can’t pay the full rate. That’s how these clinicians fulfill their social responsibility.
However, many of these slots go unfilled just because no one ever asks.
Call and ask.
Search on dpcare.org. Or Google your town’s name plus the word “concierge” or “cash pay.”
“I’m really interested in becoming Dr. X’s patient but I don’t have the money to pay full price. Does she have a scholarship program? A waiting list?”
That’s all it takes. Now go and claim your excellent, personalized healthcare!
