Is anyone aware of any Toledo-area general practice physicians who have gone to either a monthly payment or cash-only system? The term for this is "Concierge Health Care."
Two of my relatives (one in Columbus and one in Cincinnati) have switched to groups of doctors who are no longer accepting health insurance. My Columbus cousin pays $50 per month for as many office visits as she needs and any procedures they can do in the office. My Cincinnati brother-in-law goes to a doctor where he pays cash ($35) for his office visits. They both have catastrophic health care coverage.
One of the major advantages of these concierge doctors is that they have fewer patients.
I have an option at work to be given money to be used for whatever type of coverage I choose, and I would love to sign-up for a concierge general practitioner.
