While We’re Waiting For That Universal Health Care Thing…

http://blogs.phillyburbs.com/news/bcct/wp-content/blogs.dir/2/files/2009/January/Saturday/health_insurance.bmpWe suggest that those of you in need go check out HealthAccessRI. (Entirely on the level, despite sounding too good to be true.) Here’s a pitch from its managing director, Dr. Michael Fine, who also served on the National Health Policy Council for Obama’s campaign and transition team.

The Most Affordable Health Care in RI: HealthAccessRI — the nation’s first subscription primary care organization for people without employer-provided insurance, is an affordable way for everyone to have a family doctor.

For $25-30 a month (and a small per visit charge, usually $5 or $10) you can choose one of 35 family doctors, nurse practitioners, or physicians assistants, who work in 12 community medical practices all across Rhode Island. You’ll be able to have yearly physical exams and pap smears, sick visits, sports injury treatment,prescription refills, immunizations and travel advice, sexual health evaluations and contraception, someone to call at night if you get sick, and someone who you can trust, who knows you and your life — all for a low monthly fee. HealthAccessRI members get incredible discounts on xrays CTs and MRIs, on labwork, physical therapy, home health, prescriptions and other medications, cardiology stress testing, and women’s health.

This is health care, not health insurance — what you need, in your neighborhood, at a price you can afford.
