Healthcare vs Medical Care:
Knowing the Difference is Powerful

We hear a lot in the news about Healthcare.
When I hear the news say Health Care for everyone I cringe because we really don’t want Healthcare, we want Medical Care. Let’s look at the differences between the two.

Medical Care has never been better. Medical Care brings us new procedures, new remedies, new medications, and surgeries we never dreamed possible. Not to mention the vaccinations that are constantly coming out to protect us from disease and cancer in the first place. And on top of that, we also have the incredible ability to prevent diseases like cancer when we never thought we could. So, getting the right Medical Care means everything to you. It used to be that your doctor knew everything about you. This was the foundation of Medical Care. Medical Care is a SERVICE practice.

Healthcare has never been worse. Healthcare is about administration costs, CEO salaries, insurance denials, and insurance premiums going up constantly. It means you’re not being able to get into your doctor’s office because administration says the doctor has to see more patients, so you wait three months for next appointment. It also means seeing your physician for only 6 minutes because she has to see more patients in order to make the top heavy administrators money. Governmental rules and insurance regulations have suffocated the conversation between your doctor and you. Healthcare is a FOR-PROFIT business.

So next time you think you want Healthcare, think twice. You want to customize your Medical Care with choices and a voice in what works for you. That only comes with the time you spend with your provider.

The good news is…more and more doctors are stepping away from Healthcare and back into Medical Care by becoming DIRECT PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIANS. Think about getting one of these doctors for your AGING PARENTS and yourself. You deserve the peace in knowing your doctor has your back.

PS: DIRECT PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIANS do not take insurance. Instead they take time with you and your family. Find one today at and set up a time to visit their office. Their monthly fees are minimal compared to CONCIERGE doctors. We will talk more about this difference soon.
