Medcor’s model avoids the conflicts of interest common in a claims-driven industry. On-site clinics and triage services can influence referrals to off-site providers and specialists, including when patients go, where they go, and how often. All referrals, whether medically necessary or not, can generate revenue that creates economic pressure on the referral system. When providers gain revenue from referrals, prescriptions, labs, PT, “in-network” discounts, those ancillary revenues can easily off-set low prices from the providers. Medcor does not gain revenue from referrals to off-site clinics, pharmacies (nor from on-site dispensing), labs, case management, physical therapy, and other services that on-site clinics or triage can influence. In addition, Medcor’s independence from hospitals, clinic chains, pharmacies, and provider networks ensures we are able to work effectively with any of them without economic preference. Medcor’s model can seem more expensive at first because the true costs of service are disclosed up front (learn more about our transparency), but the model aligns us with patients and employers for better health and financial outcomes overall.
