Concierge Medicine

CNN has an article on the coming trend towards concierge medicine, or boutique medicine. The example given is for a $1,500 fee (annually?) for the doctor to reduce his practice from 2,500 patients to 600. With that the promise is for increased access. That's $900,000!! Those sneaky doctors may have just monetized the opportunity cost of sitting in a waiting room.
