We at Mountain Medical Arts moved here more than ten years ago to practice medicine in a style that honors you. Our specialty is longer visits: serving you, rather than the broken healthcare “system”.
Increasingly, insurance companies (including Medicare and Medicaid) are getting between us. As you have noticed, their definition of good care is based on how much we can type into a computer: your medications, your diagnoses, even your family members’ diagnoses are required documentation. All of this information is entered into centralized databases to “ensure quality” and “control cost.” Neither of those is happening, and yet, October 1st, new billing requirements will push even further into your privacy and take more time away from our visits. We want to take healthcare back from insurance! To do this, we will change to a Direct Primary Care practice.
