HFM Annual Visit Policy Explained

The following link attempts to explain an "innovation" that the government and insurers decided was a wonderful idea a few years ago - without ever asking the doctors or their staff that must implement it. It has caused MUCH confusion for patients and misrepresentation by insurance marketers. For years they refused to pay for "preventative, annual exams" - THEN they saw the light and said not only do we now think they are valuable, we want no co-pay or deductible to stand in the patient's way of getting them! But, then defined them in such a limited fashion (and pay so poorly for them) that essentially nothing the patient really    wants - management of their usual chronic conditions, reills of their medications, of even a proper physical exam (for Medicare) is "covered." THOSE things require a separate visit. It is NOT how family medicine works!! We are always considering multiple problems, both physical and emotional at every visit. It is what makes Primary Care, efficient care. We do not like this whole idea, but we must play by their rules. The margins in Primary Care between expenses and            reimbursement are too marrow to do  otherwise. The following link will take you to the full explanation.

Heritage Family Medicine Provides:
  • Board-certified physicians and nurse practitioners.
  • Same or next day appointments if ill, guaranteed.
  • Lab and x-ray services on site.

Save 50% on Primary Care Medicine...
HFM may be the ideal practice for those who...
  • Pay their own medical bills.
  • Use medical reimbursement plans.
  • Use health savings accounts.

As of May 21, 2014 the RULES HAVE CHANGED! 

It is "not your Daddy's exam" anymore, but a serious undertaking, with numerous mandated requirements and strict regulations.

YOU MAY ONLY THINK YOU HAVE "COVERAGE"

With remarkable naivete, the American people believed a lie.  It is NOT possible to deliver MORE and BETTER health care to MORE people at LESS cost -- when has that ever been possible in any endeavor? Worse, this is being attempted with no legal reform and heaps of new burdensome regulations, reducing the efficiency of the system 15% - 20%. 

The hidden solution:
shift the cost to the patient.
