Should I keep my medical insurance?

Yes!  Direct Primary Care allows you to subscribe to unparalleled access regardless of using medical insurance or not.  We offer significant savings in wait times, out of pocket costs for visits and labs, and no surprise bills in the mail.  You may use any insurance benefits for labs, medications, studies and other treatments. 

No insurance, no problem.  We will help you find affordable options for out of pocket expenses including medications, labs and other studies.  

We do not bill Medicare, Medicaid or a private insurance for our visits.  We encourage you to maintain an insurance plan for its original purpose, to cover unexpected costly medical expenses, specialists and hospitalizations.

What if I would like additional services beyond my subscription?

No problem!  As a Worry-Free Subscriber you receive a full benefit package that covers virtually all your primary care needs.  Any additional services you desire can be billed under A-La-Carte pricing.


Where can I be seen for in-person visits?

We do in-person visits at our 3 office partner locations in the city and we can see you at your home, at your friend or family's home, or at your workplace.  


What conditions can be treated by telemedicine?

A surprising number of acute and chronic conditions can be treated by a phone or video consultation.  Issues that require an in-person visit can often be triaged and temporized by a telemedicine visit while you wait to be seen.  However, emergency conditions that are life or limb threatening need to be treated in the emergency department. 

We look forward to serving you!
