Is ‘Concierge Health Care’ Worth the Money?
(Daily Finance) — What gets to you the most about medical visits: waiting days or weeks to see your doctor, the hour-or-more delay when you’re there — or the feeling that, once you finally met with the doctor, you got only 10 or 15 minutes of his time? There is an alternative, if you can afford it: concierge health care. It’s sometimes called “Cadillac health care” — and as with a luxury car, the costs can vary greatly as you customize the final product. Program membership fees typically run from $1,500 to $25,000 a year, depending on the services chosen.
