Trying to make money on Obamacare? (Posted on 1/15/13 at 10:41 am)
One thing I've noticed popping up like wildfires in my area are the 'Urgent Care' type places like Doctors Plus etc. That offer basic Primary Care services and minor diagnostics (like X-Rays) with the onset of Obamacare and the emphasis on lower costs, I see a lot of people/plans flocking to these. Has anyone given any thought to this? Anyone know of companies in this industry that are publicly traded?

Sounds like a good idea to me. Last time I went to see a doctor (8 years ago), I popped into one of those "Doc in a box" tiny clinics in an office building.
Was great. I was pretty sure I had streph throat and just needed some antibiotics for it. Walked in, filled out a couple of short forms, saw a doc in 10 minutes, doc said yep, streph in about 5 minutes and I was done a few minutes later with a generic drup prescription and out of pocket about $50-$75 on the visit.
