Physician know that it's getting tougher to practice medicine as an art. Health Care 2020 offers a way forward, to a consumer-friendly marketplace.
From the independent practice model of the 1960s, U.S. health care is now marching into an era of more restrictive managed care inside large hospital and health systems. This progression has created a patient-unfriendly medical care system that, at the same time, treats physicians as commodities.
Physicians are at a fork in the road. Politicians hear the cries of their constituents and are marching toward government-set prices for all medical care. For the physicians who believe in delivering care in a private medical marketplace, there is a crying need to find better ways to reduce cost and enhance the physician-patient relationship.
Health Care 2020 will not resolve all physician issues. It will, however, allow physicians to practice independently if they choose, set their own course, and escape the micromanagement imposed on them by large hospital systems and provider networks.
By connecting the dots, Health Care 2020 offers a new option for physicians, driven by Reference-Based Pricing health insurance.
Health Care 2020 offers physicians full transparency of the cost of care and elimination of being tied to provider network systems. It provides patients with an insurance product that is simple to understand, reduces administrative cost, provides full price transparency understandable to the patient, and creates a patient-friendly marketplace.
