Affordable Care Act-- Know where Concierge Practice is heading in Coming Years The dearth of physicians caused by the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) will result in a massive increase in the popularity of Concierge Practice in coming years.
DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- According to Association of American Medical Colleges , there will be a shortage of 90,000 doctors by 2020 because of Obamacare insurance coverage provisions. It's not surprising that more professionals are exploring or pursuing different options, like Concierge Medicine. As the premiums are becoming more affordable the Concierge practice will no longer be a privilege of the rich. However, the Affordable Care Act has imposed many new requirements that affect the ability to accept and charge patients for concierge service, if they also participate in exchange plans or in Medicare and traditional commercial plans. Therefore, it is important to know how to keep your practice legal under the new act.
