Access Direct Care is a discount plan that allows you to put a ceiling on your medical expenses at my office, while offering excellent, timely care. It operates like a concierge practice. The plan includes:
- All office visits for one year (as many as it takes, no limit)
- Same or next day appointments
- One yearly wellness examination (a complete physical examination)
- One yearly comprehensive lab workup, which includes a complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel (liver, kidney, electrolytes, glucose), urinalysis, PSA (prostate cancer screening test for men), cholesterol panel, and Pap smear (for women)
- One yearly EKG
- Weight loss visits, as needed
- Phone-Fax-Email-Text messaging available for increased communication
- Complete privacy. I will not submit any charges to your insurance carrier (if you have one), so all of your healthcare information will be totally confidential. If you have a high deductible and would like to have charges submitted to go against your deductible, I will supply you the paperwork to do so.
- Your regular health insurance will still be used for medical care outside of our office, and I will refer you to doctors that are within your network.
What is not included:
- Nutritional products and medications
- Additional labwork, but these are available at a very reasonable cost
- House calls
This program works very well with healthcare flexible spending accounts and health savings accounts (HSAs), for those with high deductibles, and for those with no insurance. But it is available for anyone. Please note that the Access Direct Care program is not health insurance. It is a prepaid discount plan.
