The Healthcare Revolution
Dr. Dean Funk is a specialist in family medicine with a special interest in the patient/physician relationship. He is trained in the provision of comprehensive care, which means he cares for any patient of any age with any problem. He is also trained in the provision of continuity of care, a unique service by which patients are seen from birth throughout their whole lives. All aspects of health care are tracked in coordination with the patient. The primary care office is the record keeper for the patient and specialty consultants are coordinated through this office. Dr. Funk has a B.S. in Biology from the University of Illinois and holds an M.D. degree from Universidad Central Del Este in the Dominican Republic. Dr. Funk traced the development of health care coverage from the end of World War II. At that time, premiums were low and deductibles were nearly non-existent. Now, of course, premiums are high and deductibles are increasing at a pace greater than the rate of inflation. The cost of the delivery of health care has also gone up. People fortunate enough to be enrolled in Medicaid or Medicare have their healthcare needs covered. But some 170 million Americans have insurance with high deductibles.

“Having health care insurance does not equate to having health care,” Dr. Funk said. Most people with high deductibles don’t go to the doctor or delay and postpone important visits. In addition, the reimbursement rate is less than cost. For $100 of care, Medicaid reimburses at a rate of about 20%, Dr. Funk said, and Medicare at about 60%. Since the 80’s and 90’s, private insurers have followed this reimbursement rule. “The system is wildly chaotic,” Dr. Funk says. Ultimately, the medical and insurance systems will have to undergo massive change, and apparently Dr. Funk believes the change will be based on a continuity of care model.
