Q. If I already have health insurance, can I still sign up for this?
A. The goal of this program is to provide primary care to those who otherwise wouldn't have access to primary care services. If you have health insurance like Medicare or Medicaid, then you cannot enroll in Direct Primary Care. If you have private insurance, you can enroll if your deductible is more than $3,000 per year. If your deductible is less than $3,000 per year, then you are not eligible for Direct Primary Care. Learn more about our pricing structure.
Q. What happens if I need to see a specialist doctor or need surgery?
A. If you need to see a specialist your primary care physician will refer you to an appropriate physician. We will provide the specialist with the appropriate health information and will coordinate any follow-up care. Keep in mind this program does not include specialty care or hospital visits. You can purchase catastrophic insurance to cover these costs.
Q. Can I get a discount if I end up not using services for a long time?
