I'm a primary care doctor who is passionate about food, writing and making healthcare less frustrating and more empowering. These are my musings. Thanks for reading!

I saved my patients over $500 last week πŸ™Œ Here’s how πŸ‘‡

CaseΒ #1
I had prescribed a patient ear drops that turned out to be $200. She was able to text me (on Saturday morning from the pharmacy) & I was able to directly communicate w/ the pharmacist to authorize an alternative βœ…

In a traditional practice, I wouldn’t have gotten this message until 2-3 days later. She either would have paid πŸ’°or let her infection get worse until I could respond ❌

CaseΒ #2
A patient scheduled her long overdue mammogram and was told it would be $400+ without insurance. She texted me to ask if this sounded right. I knew from experience that there were discounted rates at this facility, so I personally called and asked about the price they quoted. They were able to apply a discount for over $300 βœ…

In a traditional practice, she either would have paid or skipped her mammo completely ❌

If concerns about the cost are holding you back from joining Juniper, remember that a good direct care practice is meant to SAVE you money in the long-run.

πŸ‘‰ 1 Urgent Care visit avoided is worth 1-2 months or membership

πŸ‘‰ 1 ER visit avoided is equivalent to the entire YEAR of membership

How much do we spend on cable/hair/nails/lashes/unhealthy food that doesn’t serve us or do anything to better us in the long-run? What’s more important to invest in than our physical and mental wellbeing?

be well,
