PENNSYLVANIA: Concierge Medical Care, new take on primary care

While Washington dithers on what to do with health care, a local company believes its program may represent health care’s future. At Connected Health, consumers who pay an annual fee can come to the gleaming 20,000-square-foot facility in the Wexford section of Pine and consult with a primary care physician, pick up prescriptions, meet with a dietitian, work out with a personal trainer and have access to spacious fitness areas. All under one roof; no insurance other than for prescriptions, no deductibles and no co-payments necessary. Concierge medical care — a subscription model in which patients pay an annual fee for 24/7 access to a primary care physician — is an idea that has been around for a while.
