“People ask, ‘Why would I pay far and above?’ Well, ‘Why did you spend $150 on a haircut that you could’ve gotten at Cuts 4 Less for $25?” Berzin says.

This doctor’s office charges $150 a month and doesn’t take insurance — and it could be the future of medicine

Parsley Health leans heavily on functional medicine, a type of practice that addresses the root causes of disease by taking a holistic look at a patient’s history, lifestyle, and genetics. The startup oversees a network of 250-plus primary care specialists in over 40 US cities, which allows members to book last-minute appointments at any location. Members at Parsley Health receive five annual visits with their physician, 24 visits with a designated health coach, unlimited online messaging with their care team, a personalized wellness plan, and a subscription to Headspace, a popular daily meditation app. ~Business Insider, May 2017
However, the membership does not include the costs of lab work or genetics testing, which can be prohibitive — though maybe not for people who can afford $150 a month on primary care.
