I am very excited to announce that I am moving to the South Bay Health Market! Please check out the link below and let me know if you are in the area.
The reason I am moving is because the current health market that we live in is the most expensive in the country. I would also like to start bringing my own water and food. We are going to have to get away from eating out at fast food places and eat at home.
Health care costs in California have been on the rise this year. In fact, the state has run a 10% budget surplus in 2013, but some of the hospitals and clinics that have been forced to close due to rising costs are beginning to take their residents. It’s not just hospitals that are having to close, there are many private practices as well.
Local health care markets are typically places where the community is willing to take in a population of people who have been suffering from a medical condition. It’s basically a way of offering the community a form of insurance for the people in your care. It’s a system that does work well (and is popular for certain populations) because it cuts out the middle man (i.e. the doctor) and makes sure the patient gets the treatment that they need.
While there is no specific research on the topic, it is believed that these marketplaces are effective in helping people access the care that they are in need of. Many of these markets are run by hospitals, which has some advantages. For one, they are able to put the patient in charge of where they’re going to go to receive their treatment, as opposed to putting the patient in charge of how long they have to wait for the procedure.
In order to make sure that the patient gets the best care, the marketplaces are often set up to offer incentives as well. If a patient spends a certain amount of money on a service, they are encouraged to purchase another service that is more costly or time-consuming so that they still receive proper treatment. Additionally, hospitals are often able to access these services through a partnership with a local health clinic.
The problem is that the marketplaces are too good at rewarding behavior. To be fair, they do have some good incentives to reward patients for their time and effort, but they still have a problem where patients are getting stuck in the middle. I mean, if you want to get a better answer than “do some research first,” you’re going to have to do a little research yourself.
I’ve never heard of anyone taking advantage of this market, so lets see what happens in the game. I will say that the current health-market system is definitely not the best way to incentivize good care, but it does do a good job of incentivizing people to seek out a doctor and make sure they get to the hospital and get the results as soon as possible. Most of the time though, I’m more likely to have a doctor prescribe a medication instead of a surgery.
As far as finding a doctor, I feel that that is in the hands of the consumer. And while the consumer probably has the best chances of getting a good doctor, they are the ones who will have the best chance of actually getting the surgery they’re asking for. The market is not set up to reward this kind of behavior.
