Is Concierge Medicine Right for You? Making the Move to Concierge Medicine.
As practices decide to depart from contracting with insurance carriers, they must decide whether the concierge model is the right fit for them. Instead of taking on additional patients to offset increased costs, physicians are turning to the concierge medicine business model where fewer patients are seen, but the fee is greater. The patient is paying a higher fee to visit your practice and therefore will expect an increased level of service. This section will help you decide whether the Concierge business model is the right fit for your practice.
