Front-end vs Back-end Health Care

Back end health care is the type of care given after people have contracted some form of disease or degenerative process. This type of care is broken down into two very broad categories: Emergency care and non emergency care. This care is very expensive no matter who delivers the health care services. All health professionals expect to be paid quite well.

Front-end health care is the type of care that is given to people BEFORE they contract some disease or degeneration. It is sometimes called preventative care but, that term has mixed signals with non scientific and marketing overtones all convoluted up into a mess of concept.

Front end care is the least expensive type of care and its general goal is to help people help themselves and to help people become more active in their lifestyle even thought they may not want to. Front end care is a tough sell because people want to do their own thing no matter how bad it is for them. Governments can save much money by supporting front end care initiatives.

The Canadian Holistic Online Consultation questionnaire and Health Advice Therapy are new front end initiatives with great potential for the community.

  1. First, it is not always more exnspeive individually than through an employer. In some places, for some individuals, the opposite is true.Second, most individuals who do not use health insurance very much do not buy individual health insurance policies; most of the buyers use it a lot, so it is exnspeive. With an employer plan, many of the employees do not use it, so the average price, per person who has it (whether or not they use it) is less.Third, many employers subsidize the cost, so the employee does not pay all of it, and the employer pays a lot.
