Get You Some Cheap, High-Quality Health Care

Atlas Medical is the wave of the future.

AS A MEMBER OF ATLAS MD, HERE ARE A FEW OF THE BENEFITS YOU’LL ENJOY:

  • Personalized care tailored to your comfort level.
  • A physician who knows your story inside and out.
  • The choice to be seen at our office or at your home.
  • The knowledge that you are one of only about 500 patients each physician is giving their attention to.
  • Same-day scheduling with little to no waits and extended visits of an hour or more, if you’d like.
  • Quality time with your doctor; ask all the questions you want – we actually want you to!
  • Your doctor’s cell phone number. That’s what we call around-the-clock service.
  • Inexpensive and direct service. We work directly with you instead of hassling with insurance.

So, how much is 24/7 access to in-home medical care?

MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP FEES

  • Children 0-19 years old, $10/month with at least one parent membership
  • At this time, we are not able to provide routine vaccinations. Call to discuss how we can help arrange these for you.
  • Adults 20-44 years old, $50/month
  • Adults 45-64 years old, $75/month
  • Adults 65+ years old, $100/month
  • Employer groups with 5+ employees, $50/mo/adult
  • Nursing home and home-bound patients, call for details

So, why doesn’t the government encourage something like this to answer American’s health insurance needs? I’ll let Milton Friedman explain:

Indeed, a major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it… gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself […] A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.

    The obvious downside to this is that it only covers routine care and not catastrophic care, surgeries, etc. However, what if we could supplement a catastrophic plan with something like this if you feel you need all of your routine care covered by some sort of plan?

    We end up with the same answer.

    This is a great way to provide primary care! I was just in Wichita Ks (away from my beloved Texas for a few days) and this is the talk of the medical community! Primary care is the gateway for other medical needs, as well as overall health and well-being. I love this “free market” model. I’m talking with some folks about extending this model (extending the physician group) to include a variety of specialists that are commonly used and “dove tail” well with the primary care model. Membership access to an “extended model” would be only nominally more in regards to membership pricing as this model is a negotiated “fee for service” at the POS. I do believe that this is a promising way to go in the future delivery of health care. Inexpensive “catastrophic” plans should be allowed to cover the unanticipated extremes and HSA’s should be expanded and encouraged to cover routine medical needs! This is exciting stuff indeed! This will provide far better outcomes (higher quality), allow for the Dr and patient to decide what’s best and what is the most situationally appropriate care, and takes many of the usual players (insurance people, government folks, etc), out of the equation. This begins to encourage people to treat health care services like any other product that they shop for by letting them compare cost, outcomes, quality, and service, and making decisions regarding what they purchase based on their priorities/needs and how they would choose to spend their own dollars. This is exciting stuff IMHO. This will evolve, lessons will be learned, changes will be made, and concerns will need to be addressed, but this is a good place to start.

      Yep. I like it.

      I essentially get this for free because I have doctor and nurse friends. Usually they can fix me at home but, if I must go to the hospital, it’s deductible time. My circumstances don’t change my insurance needs. It’s still a good idea.

    This plan with a high-deductible HSA and you’re golden.

    I like it as a basic plan for routine HC.
