Doctors all over the country are opting out of accepting insurance and government subsidies as payment for healthcare and taking cash paying customers. It seems that Obamacare is forcing them to reevaluate how they provide the best healthcare to their patients. Not only does it cut out the middle man (government and insurance companies), but it also drastically reduces prices for patients; some by as much as half!
Consider these doctors. First, Dr. Robert Lamberst, a primary care physician in Martinez, Ga., has adopted a new system of billing patients. The new system charges a monthly flat fee instead of taking insurance, Medicare or Medicaid for office visits, according to local NBC 26.
According to Lambert’s site, the fee ranges from $30 to $60 a month depending on a patient’s age and covers all primary-care services. However, he points out that this only covers his services and that insurance may be necessary for other care.
“My fee covers only my services, not the cost of visits to specialists or many of the tests I may order,” the website states. “This means that insurance may still be needed for much of the care I may order.”
