Membership

Being a member of WholeFamily MD means being a part of our patient care family. Our model of care allows a relationship of trust and individual consideration. Our allegiance is to you, our patient, not to insurance companies. We see fewer than half of the patients per day a traditional primary care doctor sees, and we have the time needed to thoroughly address your concerns.

We welcome you to our practice at WholeFamily MD!

Your Membership

Unlike some concierge practices, we do not charge thousands of dollars for membership. Instead, we charge a small annual membership fee which supports the more personalized care that our office provides.

Your membership fee covers a variety of services that take place inside and outside of typical visits. Some of these services include home visits for newborns, telephone and email consultations, virtual visits when appropriate, and form completion. In addition, we provide specialist referrals, prior-authorizations, and secure electronic medication refills. Importantly, membership provides you with access to communicate privately with your provider through our patient portal.

Insurance

In order to focus our time and energy on your health, we limit our interactions with insurance companies. Our providers are out of network and do not contract with any commercial insurance plans. We are non-participating providers with Medicare. Payment for our care is due in full and is required at the time of service. As a courtesy, we electronically bill your insurance carrier on a non-assigned basis meaning that any reimbursement is paid directly to the subscriber. Please check your insurance plan to understand its reimbursement policies for out-of-network providers.

Many people find that flexible spending accounts or health savings accounts, when combined with high deductible health insurance plans, offer an affordable solution for our model of care.

We accept personal credit cards, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express, personal checks and cash. We do offer a sliding scale based on financial need. Please contact reception for standard rates and discounted rates.
