How We do Things
We do things a little differently at iHealth Clinic and we think you’ll like that.
Healthcare is expensive, confusing and inconvenient – it doesn’t have to be.
Here are just some things we do differently:
3 ways to get Care :
Why don’t we take medical insurance? (it’s a great question)
Insurance Companies Profit
Health Insurances, like most companies, make profit. The question is whether they should make that much profit?
Here are some statistics in 2017:
Highmark (providers +insurance) profit = $1.1 billion (source)
UPMC (providers + insurance) profit = $1.3 billion (source)
UnitedHealthCare (insurance alone) profit = $163 billion (source)
Aetna (insurance alone) profit = $1.9 billion (source)
Insurances Increase Cost
It may not be obvious but insurances increase healthcare costs for everyone.
How do health insurances increase healthcare costs?
How much do you really Save?
Using your insurance may not be the cheapest option.
The costs of using and having health insurance include:
• Premiums – cost you pay monthly
(~$6,700 per year for a singles – source)
• Deductibles – cost you pay before insurance will pay anything
(~1,500 per year for singles – source)
• Copays – cost you pay for each service
(~$15-25 per visit – source)
• Co-insurance – cost you pay after the deductible is met
(15-25% of costs, max ~$7300 for singles – source)
Healthcare in the USA is unlike any other industry.
No one (not the doctor, not the office staff, not even the insurance company) can tell you the cost of any service until after the service is done.
• Imagine buying a hamburger without knowing the cost?
• What if you were looking at a car to buy that could cost anywhere from $20,000 or $150,000?
No prices means you can’t make an informed decision on what you need if you use your health insurance.
