SimpleCare – Better healthcare for less money

Mili Note: I do not endorse products on this website. I do endorse great IDEAS.  This is one of those, I think, and I thank Gadget42 for sending it along.  It’s definitely a good idea and you don’t necessarily have to buy into anything to get it – just approach your health care providers and ask.  Our dentist here in town does cash-only prices regularly as most of his patients are self-employed farmers and ranchers who don’t have dental insurance.  All you have to do is ask (or offer to write a check) and the price drops by almost half.

SimpleCare is a grassroots movement that empowers patients and doctors to come together for the purpose of solving the problems that plague the American healthcare profession as a result of the inefficiencies and exorbitant pricing schemes of the health insurance industry. As the largest patient/provider organization in the country, SimpleCare is dedicated to returning common sense, affordable, patient-driven healthcare to the medical community.

So, how does SimpleCare work?

The secret is actually quite simple. We call it PIFATOS, and it means “Pay In Full At Time Of Service.” A patient sees a doctor, a doctor delivers the needed medical care, and the patient pays the doctor out of his/her own pocket in full directly after the appointment. Sound revolutionary? Well, it’s not. It’s just old fashioned. That’s the way healthcare costs used to be handled, before the present health insurance system.

And while PIFATOS is ultimately simple, it is often met by a host of questions: But isn’t that too expensive? Isn’t it better to have insurance in case of catastrophic illness? Do doctors even allow you to pay in full anymore? The fact is, 30 – 50% of what a doctor charges goes toward administration costs, so when PIFATOS occurs, doctors can charge 30 – 50% lower fees. With SimpleCare you still have insurance, but you have catastrophic health insurance (which is generally only 1/3 of the cost of regular health insurance) to cover any major medical expenses. Regular doctor visits are done with PIFATOS. And yes, many doctors do accept PIFATOS, and thanks to SimpleCare, the numbers are increasing.

By joining SimpleCare you will be provided with a vast array of materials, contacts, and discount opportunities that will help you take charge of your healthcare situation – you’ll save money and you’ll get better care. It’s just that simple!

SimpleCare – Practicing Medicine Your Way

SimpleCare is a grassroots movement that empowers patients and doctors to come together for the purpose of solving the problems that plague the American healthcare profession as a result of the inefficiencies and exorbitant pricing schemes of the health insurance industry. As the largest patient/provider organization in the country, SimpleCare is dedicated to returning common sense, affordable, patient-driven healthcare to the medical community.

The secret is actually quite simple. We call it PIFATOS, and it means “Pay In Full At Time Of Service.” A patient sees a doctor, a doctor delivers the needed medical care, and the patient pays the doctor out of his/her own pocket in full directly after the appointment. Sound revolutionary? Well, it’s not. It’s just old fashioned. That’s the way healthcare costs used to be handled, before the insurance companies took over.

And while PIFATOS is ultimately simple, it is often met by a host of questions: But what do I charge for my services? Why do I need to be a SimpleCare member to accept cash payments? Do any patients pay in full these days? In terms of charging for your services, your SimpleCare membership packet will contain detailed information that can help you code and charge for your services…and in general you’ll be charging 25 – 50% less than what you’re charging insurance companies, since you’ll dramatically cut administrative fees. And while you don’t need to be a SimpleCare member to accept cash payments, the benefits of being a member far outstrip the nominal membership fee. And yes, more and more patients are starting to be interested in PIFATOS…for example, the thousands and thousands of SimpleCare patient members!
By joining SimpleCare you will be provided with a vast array of materials, contacts, and discount opportunities that will help you provide your patients with the option of PIFATOS…and you’ll gain the “freedom from the corporations” that you need to practice medicine the way you want and know to be best!
