"Cash pay only" doctors compete with the existing system today. With the rising upfront costs each year, there's an increasing trend of a cash pay doctor's office visit being cheaper than the co-pay of your insurance provider.

Why this is true a separate discussion (possibly overhead of dealing with the healthcare system or insurer).

We have seen that trend of more and more cash-pay only physicians and think it is great!
