Seattle doctors try flat-rate no-limit primary care

Reuters, July 9, 2009

A Seattle primary care clinic that has cut insurers out of the equation just received $4 million in venture capital to expand. The physicians charge patients a $99 fee to join, and then a monthly rate of $39 to $119, depending on age and level of service. Patients aren't denied service for pre-existing conditions and get round-the-clock access to appointments.
