Dr. Consulta is a service that combines the universal access of the public health system with the quality of the private health market, helping customers affordably connect with doctors, hospitals, plans and more

The Brazilian healthcare company Dr. Consulta offers a new take on paying for healthcare. The service provides customers with everything from office visits to x-ray body scans at set prices.

The company intends for this innovative take on paying for hospital visits and services to function as an affordable alternative to other healthcare options in the United States, which can be costly. Dr. Consulta’s price points include $30 for office visits and $128 for an MRI.

The company services patients through clinics that are operated by a booking system, with 2,000 doctors employed in total. To lower drug costs, Dr. Consulta assists pharmaceutical companies with potential persons for clinical trials, alongside helping patients find pharmaceuticals at discounted prices.

The organization has provided health services to 1 million patients since being founded in 2011. Its goal is not to become a hospital or health insurance organization; instead, it aims to connect those in need with existing associations.
