Commenting on the recent article, the Los Angeles house call doctor notes that the efficiency and convenience of house call medicine makes it a great option for anyone needing necessary out-of network healthcare.

House call medicine is a great option for anyone wanting an alternative to stuffy and costly urgent care clinics.

Dr. Farzam points out that certain plans do offer reimbursement for house call medical services, and many patients find that the cost is still reasonable when insurance is out of the equation entirely.

According to an article published July 27th by CBS Los Angeles, the cost of Covered California healthcare plans is set to go up for the second year in a row. While the four percent rise is not as high as some increases that are expected across the country, it can still add up for many people across the state trying to squeeze healthcare into their already tight budget. According to Dr. Michael Farzam, the founder and lead physician of House Call Doctor Los Angeles, those who find that they have to go without insurance, or those who have run into a coverage gap in their plan when traveling to Los Angeles, can turn to house call medicine for more affordable care. Dr. Farzam points out that certain plans do offer reimbursement for house call medical services, and many patients find that the cost is still reasonable when insurance is out of the equation entirely. He notes several reasons why House Call Doctor Los Angeles is able to provide reasonable rates for exceptional urgent care for Los Angeles residents:

  • Low Administrative Costs – When seeking care in a hospital or doctor’s office, Dr. Farzam notes, patients often interact with two or three employees (receptionists, medical assistants, etc.) before they even see the doctor. While these roles are necessary in that setting, Dr. Farzam explains that House Call Doctor Los Angeles operates strictly as a conversation between doctor and patient, so personnel and administrative costs are much lower. Dr. Farzam also notes that his ability to avoid the significant overhead that goes along with having a physical office allows him to provide outstanding care for a lower cost to the patient.
  • Personalized Care – Hospitals are designed to be one-stop-shops for healthcare, but that also means that they have to incur the costs that go along with being prepared for just about any medical eventuality. This can also mean that the overall cost of general care gets raised in order to subsidize the most expensive procedures and technologies. Dr. Farzam says that, while some of his patients that rely on House Call Doctor Los Angeles may occasionally need emergency medical attention, those who only require a basic check-up do not need to incur the costs of these more intricate procedures. Yet, he also notes that he is able to work with x-ray technicians to bring mobile x-ray technology into a patient’s home when that commonly required service is needed.

Anyone who finds that they need more affordable out-of-pocket care or who simply want world-class medical care in the comfort of their own home, can call House Call Doctor Los Angeles today at 310-849-7991, or visit the medical practice online at http://www.HouseCallDoctorLA.com.
