We do not. Perhaps the most critical distinction in our model of care is that it centers on a direct, personal relationship between you and your doctor. That directness carries over to our business model as well.
While one might need an insurance company to help cover the cost of fixing a damaged fender on your automobile, we see no reason for an insurer to have a voice about the quality or cost of your care.
We forgo insurance payments in order to save our patients from the arbitrary, intrusive decisions that inevitably follow with third-party payors. Furthermore, this direct fee-for-service arrangement frees us from the typical contractual agreements that prevent physicians from offering wholesale prices on laboratory tests, imaging and medications.
