GCM ETHICAL DILEMMA
Limiting access to geriatric care management to the upper 10% leads most Aging Life or geriatric care managers to an ethical dilemma. Should we limit resources-?
PHYSICIAN’S ETHICAL DILEMMA LIKE GCM
The physician of the 20th century treated all patients rich or poor and did not have a business model. Today managed care physicians see everyone on Medicare, although many do not take Medicare because of the low payments. Access to the physician diminishes even more with the advent of the concierge physician, who uses a business model to only treat those elders who can pay privately, which ends up being the upper 10%
Most aging life or geriatric care managers came to the field with inner core beliefs that health care should be available to all elders, yet they chose to start a business. So here ‘s the rub.
HERE IS THE RUB FOR ALCA OR AGING LIFE
That business cannot prosper if the aging life or GCM does not have long term clients who can pay for it. The federal government does not fund the profession, so elders have limited access. Should you be part of this?
Here is the ethical dilemma. It turns out that you must serve clients long term to make your aging life or geriatric care management thrive.
