Why I chose concierge medicine | Medical Economics



By Simon Murray, MD

In this practice model physicians see a limited number of patients who pay an annual fee of around $1500.00 per year to cover non-covered services.

It really is the way things should work in a free market system.

When insurance pays medical bills to doctors instead of patients, it takes the power from patients who have little recourse for poor services. The doctor is payed regardless of how he or she performs.

The government’s efforts to define and reward quality are so primitive they are laughable.


Several of my colleagues asked, “what if every doctor did this, who would take care of the large number of primary care patients?” As I started the new practice I quickly realized that about half or more of the daily patient visits I was doing were actually unnecessary. Many of these patients could be managed safely over the telephone or with remote monitoring devices, or didn’t need to come at all.

I realized that we had been keeping our schedule full to keep it full.


Seeing only the patients who actually needed visits, allowed for walk-ins and add-ons, patients who might have been sent to the ED previously because the schedule was full. It turned out to be a great savings to the system. For example, patients with migraines could be managed in the office and not after a costly workup in the ED.


MDVIP did a five-state survey which showed that MDVIP patients saved Medicare about $350,000,000 per year by avoiding unnecessary admissions, readmissions, and providing shorter hospital stays.

The Harvard business school report states that the peak year of medical insurance merger and acquisiton was 1997, increased substantially in 1996

and very low in years before and practically non existent before 1992. It continued at a high rate thereafter the peak year.
