What is SimpleCare?
SimpleCare is a program of the Non-Profit organization the American Association of Patients and Providers, or the AAPP. As the largest patient/provider organization in the United States, SimpleCare is dedicated to returning a means of providing common sense, affordable, patient-driven healthcare to individuals and families across the US.
SimpleCare is Not Insurance, or a Discount Medical Plan.
Because both you the patient and your healthcare providers become members of the same mutual network, the AAPP, your licensed healthcare providers can now offer a fee schedule separate from the charges they may bill insurance companies. SimpleCare does not dictate the pricing or services offered by each provider, allowing each provider to practice their specialty as they see best for their patient or client's well-being.
SimpleCare is a perfect solution for members who are uninsured, have a high deductible, catastrophic insurance policy with an HSA (Health Savings Account) attached. Or, for those who belong to a Health Share Organization. You have insurance for unforeseen catastrophic events that we hope never occur. Why not pay a reasonable fee for the incidental stuff, like a sinus infection, a skin condition or minor mental health issues, as needed?
SimpleCare/AAPP patient members are their healthcare providers best patients, as they are paying in full at the time of service, we call this PIFITOS. That’s the way healthcare costs used to be handled before the insurance companies took over. Most providers find that they can charge 20-50% less than what is traditionally billed to insurance, as administrative fees and staff overhead are dramatically cut.
By joining SimpleCare/AAPP you will be provided access to a network of licensed healthcare providers in your area who have agreed to offer the lowest price possible on their services to SimpleCare/AAPP Patient Members. An annual individual membership is only $29, a household of up to 6 family members is $39. Most people save more than the membership fee off their first SimpleCare visit.
Once enrolled, you will be able to review a packet of materials, manage your account on line and help spread the word about this revolutionary program that has already helped thousands of people just like you afford dignified, high quality healthcare.
If you already see a provider you would like to continue care with that is not a SimpleCare member, please encourage them to join SimpleCare/AAPP and simply direct them to this website for more information.
SimpleCare/AAPP allows patients and providers the freedom to take healthcare back into their own hands. Freedom of choice in who you decide to trust in guiding you to better health and wellness is a constitutional right of US citizens. It shouldn't be a complicated process, involving codes, inflated pricing and restrictions set by some corporate structure who reaps the most gain. It should be simple!
SimpleCare... it just makes sense!
