What if you don’t have insurance? (uninsured or cash-pay)
The Auburn Medical Group is especially pleased to work with patients who prefer to pay cash for their care instead of use health insurance. We challenge interested individuals to find a more open and affordable office for their healthcare. There is a very simple measure to use to compare the cost of doctors’ offices. Just call and ask the receptionist how much their office charges for a “level 3 and level 4 visit” for an established patient. These are the most common levels of charge for a regular doctor visit. Then ask if they offer a discount on that charge if you pay at the time of the visit. Our patients are very pleased to learn of the 30 % discount we offer for same-day payment on our already competitive standard charges.
Tax penalty starts 2014 for not having insurance.
The new healthcare bill requires individuals without insurance for 2014 to pay a 1% of their annual income fee, increasing to 2.5% in 2015. We encourage patients to have insurance to cover for unexpected major medical expenses. More information is found HealthCare.gov.
