Current Healthcare Costs: Fiscal Cancer

  • 17% of GDP, projected to be >19% by 2017

  • 62% of bankruptcies in 2010 were due to medical expenses

  • Primary care is severely underfunded (only represents 3% of medical expenditures)

  • Burdensome fee-for-service insurance billing system undermines potential of primary care

Total annual healthcare costs = $2.6T ($8047 per person per year)

Effective Primary Care Changes the Dynamic…

  • Primary care can address 80-90% of medical issues

  • Primary care can catch little problems(hyperglycemia) before they become big problems (diabetes)

  • Robust primary care reduces need for expensive downstream care

  • But, good primary care requires doctors to spend time with their patients

The Solution:

  • Operate outside of traditional insurance

    • reserve insurance for undesirable, costly events

    • pay direct for primary care which is desirable and low-cost

    • eliminate high administrative overhead for primary care practices

  • Charge a monthly fee

    • low-cost: $64 per month

    • eliminates negative incentives of the fee-for-service system

    • incentivizes doctors to focus on holistic care

    • no co-pays or additional charges for visits and services

  • Provide great access

    • limit patient panel size

    • offer 30-60 minute appointments

    • multi-modal access, including office, phone, and e-visits

    • extended office hours and weekend hours

    • 24x7 physician coverage
