Concierge Medical Care With a Smaller Price Tag

According to an article in the New York Times, Dr. Tom Lee, is trying a new method of primary care delivery that involves a concierge type experience that he believes will help lower the costs associated with health care. The founder of One Medical Group, Dr. Lee, has been able to deliver concierge medical services at a cost of about $200 a year. He states,“We’ve designed the model so that on average we’ll do fine, no matter how often people come in,” he said. “Independent of the people we see, our cost structure is lower, and because it’s lower we can care for any demographic.”
