Picture a moment when you begin to develop an annoying cough. You carry on your day and try to take some throat lozenges to help soothe your sore throat. The following days, you begin to spike fevers and start to develop muscle aches and pains. Instead of calling a number where you are greeted by someone who says the doctor is free a month later, your call is answered by your doctor.
This doctor who knows you personally and talks to you. After listening to your symptoms, the two of you decide to meet at the clinic for an evaluation. You arrive at the office in complete misery. Once you get to the front door of the office, you think to yourself, "Oh no! I forgot my insurance card!"
Alas, you realize, your doctor does not need your insurance card nor will they have to deal with asking your insurance carrier if this visit is covered. You are greeted by your doctor and immediately take a seat on the exam table. A strep test is done and a thorough exam is completed; all at no extra cost to you.
Once the exam is done, you get your antibiotic at an extremely cheap price because your doctor has a in-house pharmacy where his savings are passed on to you.
You smile at the thought of not having to worry about the big fat bill that would have come weeks later. A few days later, you are back to your full strength!
