Or, our patients can choose to go with our Concierge medicine for $147.00 a month. If our patients go with Concierge, they can still use their insurance to pay for labs and imaging.
Some patients want our concierge service because their insurances have a very large deductible ($5,000 to $6,000) before they will start covering services. So, the patients opt to go with our very reasonable concierge fee for 24/7 access to a doctor.
Patients who choose our concierge service may choose to drop their expensive regular insurance with ridiculously high deductibles. They can get a policy to cover hospitalization and emergency services (catastrophe insurance) at a fraction of the cost.
Employers will contract with telemedicine corporations that are allowed only a one-time call with you. They are not allowed to schedule a follow up call. They cannot update you. They cannot order labs, imaging, COVID screening, much less review them and notify you about the results. Telemedicine corporations cannot visit you in the hospital. They won't speak with your employers or schools on your behalf. They won't qualify you for Handicapped Parking when you need it. They do not prescribe home health, physical therapy, or other ancillary services. They cannot refer you to a specialist or coordinate with them. They cannot resolve problems at the pharmacy - and those issues frequently occur. There is absolutely no continuity of care with telemedicine corporations. The service they offer is second-rate compared to any other type healthcare provider. That is why they are so cheap. Telemedicine providers have never physically examined you - listened to your heart, your lungs or bowels. They do not know you, your family, or your values.
