No primary care doc, no problem: How millennials are changing healthcare
from Employee Benefit News
Traditionally, individuals and families see primary care physicians several times a year and build relationships with their doctors over time. Visiting the same primary care physician when an illness strikes, or for an annual wellness checkup, can help the doctor notice changes in a patient's health and catch issues before they become more serious (and costly). But for millennials, having a primary care physician isn't necessarily a priority. That's in part because they seem to prefer on-demand healthcare options, such as urgent care, drug store clinics and telemedicine services, which are easily accessible and typically include shorter wait times. The number of urgent care centers reflects the trend.
