This is a very common question that I get asked. It usually comes from a person wanting to know if they can count on them being healthy in their own home.
The answer is “yes” for most people, but it can be tricky. Many people try to keep their health insurance and doctor while having a home with an existing doctor. This can be a good choice if you’ve got a good doctor with a good reputation, or can be a bad one if that doctor has a bad record.
The first thing to consider is the cost of the insurance. Many companies will have a very low co-payment percentage for their insurance. The co-pay is usually around 5 – 10% of your total cost. On top of that the insurance company will pay for all of the prescriptions you need and any other additional doctor visits needed. Your doctor can negotiate with your insurance company for their best price.
There is a catch though. If you’re on Medicare or Medicaid, you’ve got to pay all of the co-pays for the first 18 months. After that you can pay a higher co-payment percentage. The higher the co-payment percentage, the more your insurance company will be willing to pay for your health.
You can go to a doctor who doesn’t have a co-pay. But then you lose their services, and their office will have to bill you for the co-pay. It is the same thing with every insurance company. It’s a win-win all around. The only problem is that the co-pay percentage will vary depending on the type of insurance you have.
When you go to a doctor, it is a common form of healthcare that has a co-pay as a part of it. So if you have a single-payer plan, you can go to an outpatient doctor and pay a fee for the services. But if you have a government plan, you can go to a hospital, pay a fee for the services, and then go to a doctor who has a co-pay.
The difference is that co-pay is often a “one-time-fee” that you pay for the visit. And if you go to an outpatient doctor, you have the opportunity to pick up the tab for all the medical services that you need. But if you go to a hospital, you have to pay for every single procedure. That can add up to a lot of co-pays.
It is true that hospitals are often more expensive than outpatient doctors or even outpatient doctors with a co-pay, but the cost of medical care in the U.S. is one of the highest in the world. That doesn’t mean it’s always a bad idea. It just means that we make more choices about how we interact with health care providers than we do about the types of medical care we receive.
In the video above, I mentioned that I know that some hospitals will charge people for things like MRI’s that you’d only get in a doctor’s office. Its a bit less likely to happen in a hospital, but it happens. In fact, I know a couple of people whose insurance policy doesn’t cover any of their medical visits to a doctor, but instead covers a variety of other things that don’t involve medical care.
Health care providers in the US are paid by government or private insurance, and most of them are paid by Medicare, the government-run health care plan for the elderly and the disabled. But in some places, like the US, even private insurance providers are paid out of Medicare, so there are few if any government-provided health care providers.
