Are you willing to pay more for personalized care?
More and more people are participating in concierge medicine.
It's not cheap, you'll spend about $1500 a year in addition to the cost of insurance.
But it gets you same or next day appointments, longer time with the doctor and 24-7 email and phone access.
About 5000 doctors practice concierge care.
Some doctors are making the switch to make up for lower reimbursements under the Affordable Care Act.
The service works best for people with a serious condition, who need frequent care.
