This week’s guest believes that ACA is the driving force behind the unprecedented growth in the Concierge Medicine practice model. A second-career doctor, Tomas O’Connor, MD, is a Connecticut Interest whose original plan was to become a traditional primary care physician. As he focused on building a practice that offered more personalized care, he inadvertently became a pioneer in Concierge Medicine.
We invited Tom to share his unique journey, and to learn how Concierge Medicine differs from a traditional practice. We also explore how benefits advisors can discuss this model with clients who are looking for an alternative to dealing with longer appointment waiting times, increasingly depersonalized care and the ever-increasing personal financial responsibility imposed by today’s plan designs.
