It's an easy membership plan AND the only legal alternative to the most expensive Covered CA, individual or group insurance policies. DPC (direct primary care) patients get all the phone questions and overall management that they want as part of a low monthly fee.
We believe our direct primary care, with the option of more intensive treatment at your home, reduces your total out-of-pocket medical spending AND provides better care.
Adult $89 per month
+ Spouse $69
+ Children $29 each (consults for illness, without vaccines)
How closely do we follow, know and support our DPC patients?
Here are three quick real-life examples:
- “…You're traveling and your son tested positive for influenza? Yes, we can send in a prescription for him, plus preventative doses for everybody else in the family.”
- "… Yes we can meet you quickly to get a respiratory swab. Which car are you in today, the Range Rover or the black Audi ?”
- “…two brothers share responsibility as her medical power of attorney. They are both traveling. One is in England — he is awake now can be reached at this number.”
DPC is only available for our ongoing patients.
How to get started
Step one: Schedule your initial intake visit in your home (includes labs, ECG and about an hour with the provider).
Step two: You decide you love us.
Step three: You say "...start me up with direct primary care coverage."
What we do
We will treat all your unexpected primary care needs in the most efficient manner, suggesting methods with the lowest cost to you. Our team is available to answer your questions on the phone and manage your primary care as often as you need us — for one low monthly price.
Examples of the range of other options include a video consult, a nurse who knows your case sent to your home to give IV fluids or other care, an MA/phlebotomist coming at your home for lab draws, an in-depth face-to-face consult with a doctor, specialist coordination and more.. No matter what we are doing for you, we will always share the range of choices. From the least expensive to the highest service.
The relaxed pace of our appointments means we KNOW you. We do not order unnecessary tests. Our goal is avoid unnecessary ER trips, and reduce hospitalizations. This is not defensive corporate medicine. This is great care simply by knowing you better.
Leverage your high deductible insurance
You can use your existing high-deductible PPO or Medicare insurance to cover outside labs, X-rays, CT and MRI imaging, physical therapy, visiting nurses, specialists and hospitalizations. Patients under age 65 can submit receipts for out of network services to their PPO plan.
Our direct primary care includes free orders and consults for all of the labs, imaging, therapy, nursing, specialists and hospitalizations described above.
Low cash prices
We never recommend being un-insured against catastrophic medical problems but, for those without insurance, we keep track of how to find the lowest cash prices for outside services. We will be your go-to source for all your primary care -- from quick phone questions included at no charge to more complex appointments with a moderate charge.
