Can joining Primary Care Partnership actually save me money?
Many people find they can lower the cost of their total medical care by combining a high deductible health plan with a membership practice. Doing so makes joining this practice quite beneficial. Our type of practice is also a good fit for those who have no insurance.
Studies show that direct primary care can lead to:
- Less dependency on medications
- Fewer specialty referrals
- Fewer emergency and hospital visits
- Savings on labs and imaging
- Less need for expensive test ordering
You won't have any hidden costs or bills that come to you after-the-fact from the office or insurance company. By switching to a higher deductible, lower premium plan, patients may save money.
Will I still benefit from membership even if I don’t expect to need frequent medical attention?
Absolutely. Besides acute care and chronic disease management, our focus at Primary Care Partnership is on screenings and risk assessments, and lifestyle modifications. We want to concentrate our efforts on your long-term health and wellness. We listen carefully to you to understand how your life, work and family may be affecting your health. Together we create a personalized plan to achieve and maintain your optimal health. Advanced diagnostic tests can help us identify risk factors and health issues before they cause disease, saving you money, time, suffering and higher costs in the long run. Unlike the traditional practice environment, we have the time to deliver this type of comprehensive and detailed care.
Is there a limit to how many patients can join Primary Care Partnership?
Yes. One of the most important aspects of personalized membership medicine is limiting the practice size to be able to devote more time and energy to each patient. Therefore, once we have reached our ideal practice size, we will establish a waiting list.
What if I want to end my membership?
You are welcome to cancel your membership after 3 months with 30 days notice. We will refund memberships paid for the full year at a prorated rate.
How do I become a member?
