What is Concierge Medicine?
Concierge Medicine is built upon a model of care that is patient centered and provides convenient direct access between the patient and provider. The model does not include billing third party insurance companies; is paid for, by the patient directly to the medical office participating in this type of model.
Most often there is a monthly, quarterly, or annual membership fee that is agreed upon between patient and provider. The said fees most often cover basic office visits, and allow the patient direct access via phone, text, or email with their individual provider 24/7. Same day or next day appointment scheduling is usually available; at an unlimited number of office visits, during the active membership. Some in office procedures and diagnostic testing may not be covered by the membership, and are charged for an extra cost.
Concierge type models do not bill or accept payments from insurance companies or Medicare, although the practice may coordinate with the patient's insurance company to obtain payment authorizations when needed for referrals and testing outside of the practice.
It is important to understand the Concierge Model of Medicine is not insurance, nor is it a substitute for insurance, so all patients are advised to carry insurance for other medical services.
Elite Medical Associates is happy to provide a Tier Program for individuals who are not interested in participating in the Concierge Model membership program. The Tier Program is divided into three tier levels of care; for a one time fee-for-service, due at time of services rendered. Lab tests not performed on site, dispensed medications from Elite Medical Associates, and some injectable medications or vaccinations are not included in the tier prices, and a separate cost will be applied at time of check-out.
