Frequently Asked Questions
WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR A MEMBERSHIP?
You will have longer face-to-face time, better communication, and no wait times. You will be able to text me. You will be able to call me with any questions. My focus is keeping you healthy!
In the FreedomDoc membership model, patients are free to talk to their doctor whenever and wherever they need them, with no extra costs. This significantly increases access to a doctor and decreases the cost to a patient. Being able to talk to your doctor when you need them has tons of benefits.
I have chosen a membership model because it’s affordable to the patient and allows me to take care of my patients (whom I love!) in the best way I know how.
WILL I SAVE MONEY?
The only change is that I’ve partnered with resources that may save you additional money if you would like to pay cash rather than submit to insurance. For example, I’ve partnered with labs, imaging centers, and a prescription wholesaler for dramatically lower cash-based pricing. However, if you still would like to submit to your insurance you are welcome to do so. I can provide you with those options that allow you to make the right decision based on your situation.
HOW DO I COMMUNICATE WITH YOU?
HOW ARE OFFICE VISITS HANDLED?
WILL YOU ALLOW ME TO SEE YOU WITHOUT SIGNING UP FOR A MEMBERSHIP?
You never know what the future holds for your health, so I would always suggest joining for a membership to take advantage of my time to get ahead of any problems that may pop up. If you aren’t sure if a membership is right for you, whether it be financial, for your health, or otherwise, you can always contact me so we can sit down and I can help you work through your decision.
HOW MANY PATIENTS WILL YOU SEE?
WHAT ABOUT LABS, IMAGING, AND PRESCRIPTIONS?
Through my national FreedomDoc network, we’ve partnered with local companies that provide my patients discounts for paying with cash. However, if you still would like to submit to your insurance you are welcome to do so.
WHAT IF I NEED TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL?
CAN I USE MY HEALTH INSURANCE?
DO I STILL NEED HEALTH INSURANCE?
We recommend you continue to have some type of health plan coverage. If you are looking for a cost-effective way to obtain catastrophic care (childbirth, surgery, accidents, etc…), we recommend you enroll in a healthshare. This new type of health plan is affordable, provides great service, and is actually useful to alleviate any emergency medical bills.
WHAT IF I AM ON MEDICARE?
CAN I PAY WITH MY HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNT (HSA)?
IS THERE A LONG-TERM COMMITMENT?
My service contract is for one year. If you are unhappy with the services OR for any reason wish to cancel your contract, you may do so with a 90-day notice. Any services already performed (i.e. preventive exams) will be itemized for payment. Any refunds will be granted after the service items are paid. All contracts are automatically renewed unless a 90-day notice is received by us not to renew.
