How does insurance work in all of this? WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY TYPE OF INSURANCE; HOWEVER, WE ARE NOT TELLING YOU NOT TO HAVE INSURANCE. Insurance should cover all the outside testing, referrals to specialists and hospitalizations you may require. We are not participating in any insurance billing, including Medicare and Medicaid. If you have private insurance, you may be able to get reimbursed for your visits; however, this will be between you and your insurance company.
What makes this better for people? Our providers are not paid per appointment like most jobs. This frees them up to spend more time with you and not treat you like a number. When providers are rushed to go from patient to patient, that pressure can prevent good listening, which is required for accurate diagnosing and a treatment plan that is best for you. Ultimately, your provider can give you better care leading to you saving time and money.
Will this mean patients will need to come in more often to “get their money’s worth”? This program empowers people to take charge of their own healthcare, with the guidance of a provider. We offer an unlimited number of office visits with our memberships to give you more options and the opportunity to see a pRovider when you need it, without restraints. It also allows you to have better overall care because your provider is not rushed to get from patient to patient. This doesn’t mean you won’t get your money’s worth if you don’t come in everyday. Most people want to spend as little time as possible dealing with Medical care. Our memberships provide you all the tools necessary to make informed, healthy decisions, without worry of any limitations.
