Today's current healthcare system in America can limit patients choices for care and blind them to true costs of service.
Instead of having piece of mind on the care they are receiving, many patients have to fight insurance companies about services, costs and innocent coding mistakes that hike up the prices that the patient has to pay.
In addition patients over the years have gotten used to longer waits and shorter visits with their primary care doctor.
Fortunately there seems to be a growing trend of a more efficient model of patient care, at least in the world of family physician services. This model is referred to as Direct Primary Care.
What Direct Primary Care means is that you and your doctor have a clear, close working relationship with each other free of bureaucracy and 3rd party insurance interference.
Health Suite 110: A Family Physician Practice that Works With Patients to Provide Excellent Care
Health Suite 110 is a family physician facility located in Kansas, co-founded by Dr. Kylie Vannaman and Dr. Haseeb Ahmed.
With independent practices in the same location, both Dr. Vannaman and Dr. Ahmed's focus is on making sure the patient is comfortable and does not feel rushed to discuss issues regarding their health.
In our traditional healthcare system, many patients feel like they are on a conveyor belt being shuffled from one room to the next. Their ability to get the care they need is limited by what their insurance company is willing to cover.
But if you were to remove the insurance company out of the equation then the doctor and patient can work toward a mutual understanding of the best road to take to maintain the best state of health possible.
What facilities like Healthy Suite 110 prove is that insurance companies aren't needed for many general physician services.
Their patients can substantially reduce their insurance premiums because many services (like those shown below) are already included with their monthly service fee.

Is the Direct Primary Care Model Good for Me?
Everyone is different with their own set of unique circumstances. Here is some information to help you decide if Direct Primary Care is a good option for you, straight from the website of Health Suite 110 co-founder, Dr. Kylie Vannaman.
What you should ask yourself is:
Besides financial benefits, do you feel as if your doctor is in your corner and has your best health interests in mind?
Do your research? A theme on my site is that an informed mind can more easily choose the most efficient and logical solution for themselves.
Dr. Vannaman and Dr. Ahmed are examples of professionals that act on their convictions to provide a high quality of service to their patients. They are trying to remove obstacles away from the patient to receive the best care.
In today's healthcare climate of rising premiums, limited coverage and lack of price transparency, it is worth your time to see if a direct primary care facility can work for you.
With a proven track record of making the care of their patients their top priority, the doctors at Health Suite 110 will serve as a testament that clear communication and exceeding patients expectations is the norm and not the exception.
Happy Fourth of July, exercise your freedom to be in control of your own health care!
