If you’re looking for a way to save on your next road trip, it might be time to consider a home visit from a doctor.
A study by the American Medical Association found that nearly two-thirds of Americans say they’ve driven to a doctor’s office for a check-up and more than half have driven to the doctor’s offices of other physicians.
According to the APA, “the number of Americans who have driven from their home to a clinic for routine care has nearly tripled since 1990.”
Drivers can get a free consultation with a home-visit doctor for up to $350, or they can pay $350 for a 12-hour appointment.
Driving to a home office can save the average patient about $4,000 annually, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians.
If you don’t have an insurance company, you can pay a $50 fee to have a doctor visit you.
You can also visit your doctor’s home or clinic if you’re in pain, have a chronic health condition or need to visit a doctor to get treatment.
You can also get a home check-in and check-out service, such as BlueCross BlueShield, for up-to-date information about your health care plan.
