Is a medical clinic in a workplace really the best thing considered?
NPR seems to think so.
Worksite clinics are generally offered by larger employers, and it’s a trend that’s catching on as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act goes into effect. Many industry insiders say as more people get insurance coverage under PPACA, doctors will struggle to fit in patients and consumers will have to deal with longer wait times for primary care physicians. On-site medical clinics could be a way to get people quick and easy access to care.
It’s a trend that many are watching.
