Great news! Edmond, Oklahoma will have local access to direct care on April 1. That’ll be the day Doctor Jeffrey Davenport, M.D. opens his new practice, One Focus Medical. He is offering Atlas MD-style of primary care: membership-based, insurance-free, and destined to save patients money.
It’s built on the concept that patients pay a small monthly membership fee for unlimited access to their doctor, free procedures, affordable blood panels, and wholesale prescriptions. Like us, Dr. Davenport believes this is the future of primary care in the United States.
“We have returned Primary Care medicine to its root values of clinical excellence for and compassionate knowledge of every patient,” Davenport said.
One Focus Medical will reduce health care costs for individuals, families and businesses according to Davenport, and will offer family healthcare that is thorough and comprehensive– 24 hours a day, seven days a week with same-day or next-day appointments.
“This is the great mystery of the insurance industry. Many of these things are less expensive when packaged wholesale, rather than running them through an insurance claim,” Davenport said. “A CMP and lipid panel, for example, might be $8 to $12 versus $700 the local hospital charges. Many generic meds are a few pennies a pill lowering 90 day supplies to $3 or $4 versus a $20 co-insurance fee.”
“One Focus Medical is also able to give back to the community by helping to take care of some that don’t have access to excellent care,” he said.
Amen, Dr. Davenport. Welcome to the other side of healthcare field, where you don’t have to trip over red tape to positively impact your patients’ lives.
