We have experienced a major shift in the way we receive healthcare. We’ve all experienced this shift first hand in one way or another. Maybe you have longer wait times to get an appointment with your doctor. Then, much less time spent with your doctor during your appointment.
- Did you know – having great insurance could be a problem?
- Did you know – your primary care physician will not be seeing you if you are in the hospital?
- Did you know – that when the Discharge Planner says you are going to a facility for “rehab” that that facility is a Nursing Home?
- Did you know- that you could be in a hospital for days and not be “admitted”? AND, not being admitted will result in large medical bills that are not paid by your insurance company?
Our healthcare system has shifted from a model of patient care provided by physicians to our insurance companies driving many of the healthcare decisions made for you. You need to be part of that decision making process. Healthcare today, is now a mammoth-sized business and you must be an educated consumer. Your life and financial well being depend on it.
