Frequently Asked Questions
WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR A MEMBERSHIP?
You will have longer face to face time, better communication, and no wait times. You will be able to text me. You will be able to call me with any questions. My focus is keeping you healthy!
In the Direct Primary Care membership model, patients are free to talk to their doctor whenever and wherever they need them, with no extra costs. This significantly increases access to a doctor and decreases the cost to a patient. Being able to talk to your doctor when you need them has tons of benefits.
I have chosen a membership model because it’s affordable to the patient and allows me to take care of my patients (whom I love!) in the best way I know how.
WILL I SAVE MONEY?
The only change is that I’ve partnered with resources that may save you additional money if you would like to pay cash rather than submit to insurance. For example, I’ve partnered with labs, imaging centers, and a prescription wholesaler for dramatically lower cash-based pricing. However, if you still would like to submit to your insurance you are welcome to do so. I can provide you with those options that allow you to make the right decision based on your situation.

DO I STILL NEED HEALTH INSURANCE?
We recommend you continue to have some type of health plan coverage. If you are looking for a cost-effective way to obtain catastrophic care (childbirth, surgery, accidents, etc…), some people like to use a healthshare. This new type of health plan is affordable, provides great service, and is actually useful to alleviate any emergency medical bills.
