Administration

Pass-through Expenses

All clinic costs are invoiced on a pass-through basis.
Doctors, practitioners and nurses are trained in the miCare clinical philosophy; prescriptions are purchased at wholesale; labs are furnished and billed at contract rates.
Ongoing monthly expenses include: staffing costs, medical supplies, prescriptions, some office supplies and administrative fees.

Initial Setup

Initial facility costs vary depending on space requirements. Some organizations use current space with modifications, others renovate or construct a new facility. Space is needed for 2 exam rooms, a small lab, bathroom, doctor's office, and reception area.

"I feel that miCare is a blessing! Before, I never would go to the doctor for annual exams. The Nurse Practitioner at miCare discovered my tumor early enough to have it treated and now I am doing great. I feel she saved my life. This is what healthcare is all about..." miCare patient
