Doctor, doctor, give me the news...

Oh please let this happen across the country!

A Kansas physician says he makes the same income and offers better quality care to his patients after he dumped all health insurance companies. 
Thirty-two-year old family physician Doug Nunamaker of Wichita, Kan., said after five years of dealing with the red tape of health insurance companies and the high overhead for the staff he hired just to deal with paperwork, he switched to a system of charging his patients a monthly fee plus the price of an office visit or test, CNN/Money reported. - Finish reading here.
Health insurance is a scam and the health industry is a cash cow...  My Dr. tells me, 'if you had insurance, we could run more tests.'  You must have insurance because they make more money that way.  I go to the Dr. just to get my prescriptions refilled.  He's an internist, so when something is wrong, all he does is refer me to a specialist. 

If anyone knows of a good doctor in Minneapolis - who dumped health insurance companies - please tell me.


  1. Our previous doctor did this years ago. We loved it. It was like the old days when a person carried a catastrophic policy and paid for every day services. He charged less and it was not unusual for him to spend an hour with you.

    If you wanted to file a claim, he sent the info to a claims company to file. Cost? $2.00

    Now we have our "Medicare" doctor and all he does is peck at his laptop updating my records. I could be dying of liver failure and he wouldn't know because he never noticed my eyes were yellow.

    On the other hand - we're lucky to have a doctor at all since most of them don't take new Medicare patients. Our doctor has been a student of hubby's for about 25 years so he couldn't really say no.

    I HATE Medicare. Hate, hate, hate!!! Did I mention I hate Medicare? Well, I do.

  2. My doctor is 75 and still practicing real medicine. He even hugs his patients! Well he is Italian....But most of all he really loves his patients and prays for them individually. I found this out after getting out of the hospital and began the slow recovery from the critical illness that almost blinded me. It was then that he told me that he had been praying for me day and night that God would protect my eyesight so I would not go blind. Amazing. Obamacare is a bad word in his office.
