We recently submitted this data to Smart Money and told them that ‘Utilizing a blended rate based upon national averages for current fees charged for concierge medical care, an estimated 9,285,714,286 people could be provided concierge medical care with the 13 trillion dollar debt. Carrying this out 928,571,429 people could be provided this care for 10 years. These figures are based upon information obtained through average pricing surveys conducted from 2009-2010 by Concierge Medicine Today (CMT).’

Here’s the upshot: When you combine high-deductible health plan policies with a concierge medical program, you empower people and families to make better decisions about their health care, they in turn receive more comprehensive medical care and then the savings happen and stronger relationships occur between the physician and their patients. Dr. Marcy Zwelling’s statement encompasses this fact when she says her patients can say ‘I no longer have a doctor who needs to look at my chart to know my name.’
