"John R. Jacobsen, M.D., a Board Certified Family Practice physician, is the founder and owner of Click Family Healthcare in Kearney, Nebraska. John, who grew up in Merna, was an ag banker for 10+ years before applying to medical school. Coming from a small town, his desire was to practice family medicine in a more rural setting. After finishing his residency, John was in private practice in Geneva, Nebraska for over 10 years caring for all ages including pediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric patients. In addition, he provided obstetrical services including cesarean sections, upper and lower endoscopies, in-hospital and in-clinic minor surgical procedures, hospital in-patient care and emergency room services. John served as the hospital chief of staff, was medical director of a nursing home and was medical director of the hospital out-patient senior behavioral health program. John moved to Omaha to become the Chief Medical Officer of a start-up primary care center, a role that was administrative in nature. After 3 1/2 years, the desire to provide direct patient care led him to decide to open Click Family Healthcare. John has been active in family medicine organizations at both the state and national levels. He is currently an Alternate Delegate for the Nebraska Academy of Family (NAFP) physicians. He is a Past President and has served on the Board of Directors, Scientific Affairs committee and Executive committee. On the national level, John is the Immediate Past Chairman of the Finance and Insurance Commission of the American Academy of Family Physicians, an organization serving over 120,000 Family Physicians nationwide. He is also a member of the American Medical Association and the Nebraska Medical Association. He has been married to Janet for over 36 years, has 2 daughters, Jenny and Katie (Michael Allison) and a grandson Easton."
"Through Direct Primary Care (DPC), a patient receives comprehensive primary health care directly from Click Family Healthcare. The patient pays a monthly fee directly to Click Family Healthcare. The fee covers primary care services listed below which for most people is 85-90% of their healthcare needs. In short, Click cuts out insurance and provides you direct one-to-one primary care. Click Family Healthcare does not participate in any insurance plans, which allows us to avoid the ever-increasing, costly documentation demands and administrative intrusions that come with accepting insurance. Our practice also avoids the onerous patient data collection responsibilities which many plans impose. These require staff, time, and money and often amount to a substantial intrusion of patient privacy. Because Click Family Healthcare avoids these obligations to insurance companies, we’re free to spend more time listening to and treating patients. And because Click eliminates the significant overhead costs of participating in insurance, we pass that savings on to our patients – and give compassionate, attentive and affordable care."
