Private Health Care Contracts
This web site is intended to be a resource for patients who seek the services of medical doctors and other providers who offer private contracting as an option to obtain healthcare services. Private Health Care Contracts.com also promulgates the privilege of private contracting in health care. Private contracting in health care is no different then a private contract for other services. One party agrees to purchase services (the patient) and a second party agrees to provide them (the doctor or healthcare provider).
It is ILLEGAL to privately contract for healthcare if you have Medicare. In order to do so you must find a doctor who has “opted” out of the Medicare system.
One of the major goals of national health legislation is to cover the 30 million uninsured. The premise is that through government regulation access will increase. There is no pretense that costs will come down. In fact in countries where private contracts for health care are allowed, the costs are much lower then in the United States.
It is common knowledge that in Canada, the only nation that does not allow private contracting, access is reduced and wait times for even common procedures like bunion surgery can be years. In those countries where private contracting is allowed, rather then wait an eternity for health care people just pay for the procedures they want out of pocket.
Many people believe the discussion about health care reform in the United States is not about health care at all. While numerous provisions of health care law rob Americans of civil liberties those same provisions seem to have little to do with health care. People who share this view argue that health care reform in the United States is about government control.
After the “Kyl Opt Out” bill became law (January 1, 1998) the federal courts ruled in a case brought forth by USA Seniors that American citizens do NOT have the right to privately contract, but are rather granted the privilege to do so (and only under special circumstances). For example, if you have Medicare you are not allowed to purchase services from your doctor unless that doctor files an affidavit with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMMS) that states he will not file or accept any payment, on any Medicare patient, for any service, for the next two years.
