“There is a big difference between being expected to do something and being invited to try something,” said Michael Tetreault Editor of Concierge Medicine Today to an audience of physicians last month in Atlanta, GA. “Inside traditional medicine, patients expect to wait. They expect insurance to cover their visit. When it is not, they expect a fight. Patients today say they expect a disengaged physician and staff and an unpleasant visit when at their doctor’s office. We can do better. Concierge Medicine Patients are Invited rather than Expected … this counterintuitive approach creates a massively loyal and engaged audience.”

MDVIP Health and Longevity Study || Gen Xers and Baby Boomers think differently on aging. Boomers are worried about dementia, memory loss, self-care and being a burden to family, but they say they’re already taking steps to manage those concerns. Meanwhile, Gen Xers, who are at an age where prevention may do them the most good, are actually doing less than Baby Boomers to head off health problems. They want to live past 90, but 32% of Generation X won’t see their primary care doctor for fear of what they may learn. Read more in the MDVIP Health and Longevity Survey.

Sources close to Concierge Medicine Today and our other publications note that because there is no official federal or state registry, it is hard to pin down exactly how many physicians have switched to Concierge or direct-pay practices. Today, it is estimated that as many as 12,000 physicians operate using private subscriptions practice models across the U.S. For example, we estimate a count of around 140 verified Subscription-based Medical practices (a global term encompassing both Concierge and Direct Care offices) in the New York area and perhaps as many “under the radar” offerings, since concierge medicine for now remains a branded business model and not a certified designation. Nationally, we can project that there are as many as 6,500 concierge doctors with perhaps as many “under the radar” offerings. That’s how we get to the 12,000 number. This estimate is based upon industry interviews with hundreds of doctors, thought leaders, marketplace consultants and investors looking to capitalize in the sector over a period of several years. That is still only a minute [mahy-noot, -nyoot, mi-] percentage of the roughly 904,500 actively practicing physicians in the United States today. Given the modern-day variations in the business models and the ill-defined nature of these healthcare brands defined healthcare, it is impossible to calculate a precise number at this time.
Medscape’s recent Physician Compensation Report (http://www.medscape.com/features/slideshow/compensation/2016/public/overview#page=19), stated that Concierge Care alone in particular, has stayed at around 3% annual growth for the past 3 years. We believe there may be slightly more growth than that, but conservatively no more than 5% to 6%, based on what industry sources tell us they personally experience and the increase in physician interest about the business model since the passing of the ACA in recent years.

In the early days insurance providers feared “doc in a box” stores would drive up prices. Without strong support from the third-party payer system, many would-be urgent care chains fizzled out. American Family Care survived the initial bust by bootstrapping only one or two new clinics a year, slowly proving to patients and payers that its model was actually significantly cheaper than other options. While a trip to a hospital or stand-alone emergency room can easily top $1,000, the average urgent care visit costs under $200.

Dr. Marcy Zwelling, an internist and critical care doctor in Los Alamitos California, thinks I’ve got it all wrong. She charges patients $2,000 a year and takes no insurance. Insurance is for catastrophic illness, she said, and in many cases patients should carry just that and pay for smaller services out of pocket. “They’ll save money if they do,” she said. Mammograms can be had for $75, and an MRI costs $200 cash — tops, she said. According to Zwelling, if you have a copay and deductible on top of a high monthly insurance premium, chances are it is less expensive for you to just pay out of pocket for these and other tests. I wrote about how this was certainly the case with filling prescriptions: It’s often cheaper to not put it through your insurance company but just pay out of pocket. Michael Tetreault, editor in chief of Concierge Medicine Today, a trade journal covering the industry, said that there are about 12,000 physicians in the U.S. who now run concierge medical practices — offices that charge annual fees, generally in the $1,200 to $2,500 range, for providing “enhanced” care.
