I would like to have medical care like this!

For only $611.00 per year.

A clinic, within walking distance of your office, staffed by five doctors with a medical staff of thirteen, who provide routine exams, consultations, and certain diagnostic tests. The office does not provide vision or dental care, and prescriptions may be written but not dispensed.   When a specialist is brought in, you pay no additional costs.  All for a total cost of $611.00 per year, up from $503.00 in 2011, where it had been for the last 17 years.

My last visit to an emergency walk-in clinic was $230.00.

In additions to this clinic you have a comprehensive health plan which you employers covers 70% of the cost.  For only $550.00 per month (your cost for a typical family plan) the plan covers:

• Routine physical exams, which is also available at the clinic
• Ambulance services
• Urgent care, which is also available at the clinic
• Doctor’s office visits, which is also available at the clinic
• Inpatient hospital care
• Mental health services
• Specialist visits,  which is also available at the clinic
• Surgery
• Stop smoking aids
• Lab tests • X-rays, which is also available at the clinic
• Physical therapy, which is also available at the clinic
• Prescriptions, which is also available at the clinic
• Maternity care, which is also available at the clinic
• And more

To avail yourself to all of this and a salary of $174,000 per year, just get yourself elected to Congress.

The clinic is The Office of Attending Physician, U.S. Congress.
