The United States spends more on health care than any other nation in the world yet comes in dead last in overall ranking with 10 other high-income countries.
Health insurance operates on a fee-for-service model and incentivizes more testing, more treatment, and more prescriptions, but more treatment does not mean better health care. The fee-for-service system has led to months to get an appointment, hours in waiting rooms, and mere minutes with a doctor.
Our country is facing a physician shortage, in part because of doctors leaving medicine because of burnout fueled by excessive bureaucracy, increased workload, decreased reimbursements, and emphasis on profits over patients.
Palliative Care Consult has been created based on the principles of The Ideal Medical Movement, a national trend where medical care is relationship-driven rather than production driven. An Ideal Medical Practice maximizes time spent with patients by minimizing overhead, staffing, and administrative costs. Our goal is to provide the best treatment based on your needs by being accessible, efficient, and accountable.
Have the freedom to create comprehensive treatment plans for a “Wholistic” approach
We are able to offer generous appointment times tailored to fit your needs and to maximize our time together, focused on you.
Phone calls are returned by the doctor, directly.
We offer both in-office or in-home appointments based on your needs.
Palliative Care Consult does not contract with any health insurance companies and is considered to be an out of network provider.
Your health insurance plan may pay for some level of out-of-network treatment. Although we do not bill insurance we can provide you with the documentation (a “super bill”) that you need to submit a claim to your insurance.
Palliative Care Consult has opted out of Medicare because we are unable to deliver the quality health care you deserve under Medicare’s complex regulatory codes, required compliance with mandates enforced with financial penalties, and lack of transparency in the flow of tax payer dollars. Because we have opted out of Medicare you cannot submit a claim to or attempt reimbursement from Medicare.
