Innovation in health care

The WSJ reports on a primary physician, running a walk-in clinic, who is trying a new business model.
For a monthly fee of $83 per individual or $125 for a family, the clinic provides unlimited primary and urgent care. Those who enroll in the prepaid plan get office visits, lab work, X-rays and as many generic drugs as the clinic can provide. Dr. Wood is one of several hundred doctors across the country offering flat-rate, pay-in-advance plans.
