University of Michigan nurses hold rally to fight for patients’ equal access to health care
Nurses in Michigan and Vermont want their workplaces to help them help patients.
Nurses also take issue with Michigan Medicine’s concierge medical care pilot, called the Victors Care concierge medicine program. The primary care program has an annual membership fee that allows patients to pay for more time with their doctor and “enhanced access,” according to MLive.com. The “founding” memberships cost $2,700 a year for those who signed up before June 30 and will eventually rise to $3,600 each year once founding memberships expire.
