According to a study by researchers at the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago and Georgetown University, the number of doctors engaged in “concierge medicine” is on the rise. The study found that almost 1,000 physicians nationwide practice concierge medicine. Physicians with these types of practices offer enhanced services for patients, including longer appointments and increased availability. In return, physicians request patients to provide retainers or additional costs for the services.
There are many legal issues that must be considered when setting up a concierge medical practice. If you need assistance with billing for concierge services or setting up a concierge medical practice, please contact the attorneys at Wachler & Associates at 248-544-0888.
