Is Curus right for me?
You don’t need Curus’s healthcare management solutions if…
- Your PCP is available to you 24/7/365.
- You know just the right specialist to go to when necessary and how to get an appointment without waiting 3 – 6 months.
- Your medical records are complete, accurate and easily accessible.
- You can call your doctor back as many times as you need to with as many questions as you have. Time of day doesn’t matter.
- You do not need any back up in an emergency. You can handle it.
- You are happy to be examined by the physician’s assistant. You do not need to see your doctor or speak to her/him on the phone.
- You are content to have your medications prescribed by multiple physicians. You do not see the benefit of a clinical pharmacist reviewing your prescriptions for negative interactions or cost containment.
- You have plenty of time to stay on the phone and coordinate your care. You especially enjoy the repeat conversations, dropped calls and multiple faxes. Inaction is considered a plus and can be very exciting.
- You feel great and do not see the the need to pay for healthcare services you are not using. You do not need a plan in place.
- You never have medical emergencies, and do not expect to have one any time soon.
- You do not need anyone to advise you about your health insurance. You fully understand it.
- With a diagnosis of great concern, you certainly do not need a second opinion at a medical center of excellence. And if you want one, you can coordinate it yourself.
