Myatt-Jones has seen the benefits and the downsides to the new law and the many effects that health care reform continues to have on his patients as well as his colleagues in the medical field in Alabama.
Since the ACA was passed, 89% of Alabama healthcare marketplace consumers who signed up for health insurance through the state exchange qualified for an average tax credit for their insurance payments of $266 a month, per the US Department of Health and Human Services. JaVar Myatt-Jones and other healthcare providers have worked with state regulators to offer their services to more patients who can now afford healthcare insurance coverage and make more frequent trips to the doctor’s office. JaVar Myatt-Jones has seen his patient numbers increase since the dawn of the ACA and continues to make strides in how his office receives and documents patients to make it easier for them to continue their care at his office.
JaVar Myatt-Jones has seen the many changes in his own practice and throughout his community as a result of the ACA. He has seen many new faces in his offices, but he has also heard stories of the convoluted nature of the state’s exchange marketplace as well.
JaVar Myatt-Jones is a family medicine physician based in Tuscumbia, Alabama. He works every day with patients and families from all over his community and assists them in preventative health and treatments for all of their medical conditions. Although Myatt-Jones has extensive medical training and experience, he is always trying to challenge himself to learn and practice new advances in medicine whenever possible. He believes that his responsibility is to help his patients find the best possible treatment for all of their ailments. He has recently taken an interest in integrative medicine.
Integrative medicine is a different way of thinking about patient health. Instead of focusing on one area of the body or one system at a time, integrative medicine considers the entire body, and also the patient’s mind and spirit, such as it is, in its treatment. JaVar Myatt-Jones doesn’t come from this tradition. He worked in many large hospitals and clinics in his time that practice traditional Western medicine, but he sees the potential benefits. Most practitioners of integrative medicine usually marry traditional Western treatments with Eastern treatments such as massage, acupuncture, and other alternative methods in an attempt to treat the entire person, not just their sickness.
JaVar Myatt-Jones will continue to add new thought and traditions to his physician’s toolbox to help his patients any way he can. Myatt-Jones is always reading up on new approaches to patient care and overall health so that he can serve his patients better and in a way that is more comfortable for them.
