This is awesome, they did all my blood work and x rayed my chest for pneumonia. Wrote my antibiotic and blood pressure meds. Everything was covered, it's about time someone tried something new and wasn't just thinking about money.

I can't believe it but it's real. Saw a doctor at one of the clinics on merchants, Dr. Swicegood and everyone there was so nice. Got all my labs and diabetes medicine I really can't say how thankful I am.

All that they said so far has been true. I saw a wonderful PA at one of the urgent care clinics and he was fantastic. Actually listened, wow, got my flu shot and DOT physical and even made an appointment for my wife at one of the family practices. Great idea!!!

Why won't they treat chronic pain!!! That's the people that need most help and can't find doctors if they really want to help people that can't afford insurance than don't say you can't treat chronic pain!

I love the idea, if ten care did something like this we wouldn't have a healthcare money problem.

I wonder if these people thought of how this will drive down what other doctors are getting paid from insurance companies. It is priced to low for other medical practices to compete with and I don't see how the company will prosper. If some people can't afford insurance than let them get Medicaid, or get an education and a better job that offers health care.
