Maine doctor cuts prices in half by refusing health insurance
A Portland, Maine, physician announced on April 1 that he would cut the middle man and deal directly with his patients, no longer accepting insurance in any form.

"I’ve been able to cut my prices in half because my overhead will be so much less," Dr. Michael Ciampi told the Bangor Daily News. Before, Ciampi charged an existing patient $160 for an office visit addressing one or more complicated health problems. Now, he charges $75.

Ciampi lost a few hundred of his 2,000 patients who had insurance and didn't want to deal with the hassle of paperwork for reimbursement, but he expects to make up the loss by attracting the self-employed, the young and others without insurance or with prohibitively high deductibles. ...

Ah yes, the daft American free market system that requires the private insurance bureaucracy.

Better yet, have well paid salaried doctors, a system of national medical insurance and treatment that is free at the time of need.

Much simpler, with no necessity for an extensive bureaucracy ... well not until some right wingnut obsessed with America comes along and advocates an internal market!

Sarah, you mean he should do pro bono work? It seems that lawyers are required to do it, or at least they have a strong push to have things like the probono.net, for people who can afford legal fees. Actually I would assume there are a few doctors who do such things, and in Lincoln are People's City Mission has a free medical clinic.

Who knows perhaps this doctor donates his services from time to time. In our state there is aid to medical students who will work in the backwoods (of course Nebr. isn't Maine) so it's the back-prairies for a certain number of years. Perhaps that idea should be added to Obamacare, so MDs who do have huge medical bills can be encouraged to work for less, and also there would be more of MDs per capita in this country?

I really don't know what this doctor's circumstances are, so in fact I don't know how much free service he could provide or for that matter what is available in Portland.
jpw it would be nice to cut out the middleman! But Obama copied the Republican plan. Give healthcare a chance to evolve

Bro James -- this has been going on for quite some time. these kinds of doctors tend to have a balanced approach because they are directed by what works verses what administrators tell them to do. they tend to read a wide range of information and listen to their patients (verses a beaureaucrat)

Jim Lincoln thinks it saves money to pay 15 desk pushers a full time salary as a mediator between you and your doctor.

send those 15 desk pushers to agricultural school and give them some land (that's where we draw our health from is the food, as God ordained)

Give a doctor a microscope and strip him of all these yokes, you set him free to do what he went to med school to do!

So, is he giving free or at least even more reduced rates to people who can't afford even the exorbitant medical prices at half the price?
