Concierge medicine is outside of insurance but is available for the insured and uninsured alike. For a retainer or a monthly or annual fee, you get the benefit of personalized ongoing health care and often less hassle and cost, with better access to communication with Dr. Kim.
This concept is surging in popularity due to its immense benefits and personal touch. Different concierge plans can offer certain conveniences, such as unlimited office visits and priority access, along with less waiting times for appointments.
How do I know if concierge medicine is right for me?
It depends on a variety of factors, including:
- Your health care needs & preferences
- The type of insurance you have
- How much you prioritize efficient, custom care
If you’re looking for a more personalized experience, concierge service is an excellent choice.
