SPOKANE PUBLIC Radio | Direct Care Offers Option for People Without Medical Insurance

By Doug Nadvornick

JULY 2017 – The Congressional Budget Office has estimated more than 20 million people could eventually lose their health insurance if either the proposed House or Senate health care bills become law. One option for those who can’t afford insurance is to pay their doctors directly when they have an appointment. Another option is available in some states but not others. It’s called ‘direct medical care’ and it’s offered at a handful of clinics in Spokane. “We charge a $110 initial setup fee and then it’s $65 a month.” Michelle Spivey is the president and CEO of True North Health Clinic, near Holy Family Hospital.
