There is a certain type of joke going back generations about how health professionals don’t ever list or advertise their prices.
Some people believe that patients should anticipate high prices, especially if medical insurance happens to be involved.
But if you don’t have insurance as well as have to spend money for your appointments in cash, knowing the price each health professional charges is absolutely crucial. This happened to me when my outdated insurance suddenly quit covering appointments with the general practitioner that I’ve been seeing for roughly fifteen years. I wasn’t willing to switch healthcare professionals, so I choose to pay the cash price once a year to stay on his patient list as well as continue receiving my normal medicine refills. It’s a very tiny price to actually pay to keep getting my necessary medications as well as not seeing half a dozen health professionals who don’t truly know me as well as actually wish to play games with my pharmacology. But I’m not simply paying out of pocket for my general practitioner, I also pay two times per year to see my marijuana health professional. He charges $150 for each visit, which is more than a lot of locales but less than certain others. It’s honestly worth paying the extra price because they understand my needs as well as treat me entirely in a fair manner. If I need an increase on my allotment for medical marijuana THC milligrams in the state registry, they will make the change soon after I choose to contact them. I have heard of quite a bunch of cases of people who have ended up severely unhappy with their cannabis physicians because the health professional tried to pry into the person’s medical history a bit much. This is particularly worrisome if you have a history of taking mental health medication, which sets off alarm bells in the minds of those who have a stigma towards those actual drugs.
