I read this article today over my lunch break and had to share it with you guys. It’s from the Minneapolis Star Tribune and documents the “back to basics” approach of Dr. James Eelkema who quit his job at a large family medicine clinic and set up his own shop. While this isn’t unheard of, Dr. Eelkema took it a step further … if you want to see this doctor, you have to pay cash.
I’ll be honest – even though I have insurance (the Pinto of a plan that it is), I would be tempted to make the drive to Burnsville to pay $54 for stitches if necessary. What about the rest of you? Do you think this is smart business or should we be satisfied with the status quo of health care?
