So I’m leaning towards seeking treatment here instead of the city. Just called my primary care clinic and requested all my medical records.
I’m wondering how my primary care provider (PCP) gets reimbursed by my insurance. Do they get reimbursed per service or per patient? If I remember the lectures from my health policy class correctly, most providers in the United States get reimbursed per service provided. However, if my PCP is reimbursed per patient served, then I guess they’re about to lose a continued source of revenue.
It’s for the best anyway. Visiting the city was starting to lose its appeal since I’m only there if I have a doctor’s appointment. And the constant travel has perpetuated the feeling of being in a post-college/pre-therestofmylife limbo.
What’s funny is that if I get a job that makes over $54k a year, I’m screwed: I will no longer qualify for my state’s ADAP program and even if my employer provides health insurance, I can still be denied coverage because of this preexisting condition.
2014 can’t come soon enough.
