March 12, 2018 1:51 p.m. – The University of Michigan Health System is listening to objections from faculty doctors and nurses and could alter the design of its hospital-based direct primary care clinic. UM’s Victors Care Concierge Program offers 24/7 personal service to patients and reduced wait times for an annual fee of $2,700. It is scheduled to increase to $300 per month in July. In an email to Crain’s, UM spokeswoman Mary Masson said the university is committed to ethical, accessible care for patients. She said Victors Care, which is a pilot program, will not adversely affect access to care for other patients. “Some faculty and staff have raised concerns,” Masson said. “We’ve listened to them and are working together to come up with solutions that are mutually satisfactory for the benefit of our patients.”
