Direct Pay Primary Care at Surface Medical Esthetics
“If I have health insurance will this benefit me?”
YES! If you have a deductible with your insurance company you may find that you budget your health care needs. That is not good health care. At Surface Medical you pay your monthly fee or yearly membership fee (average $600, see fee schedule below) and you now have unlimited access to a knowledgeable provider. With your standard medical practice and insurance carrier…If you have to pay a $500 deductible to go to urgent care on a Sunday for strep throat or a simple UTI you then will often have to pay an additional physician fee, a radiology fee and then 20% of the entire bill as most insurance companies only pay 80% of your visit. At Surface Medical you pay your yearly fee or monthly fee and you can come see Tara as many times as you need throughout the year. We are a phone call away.
“Is there a limit on the number of visits I have per year with my membership?”
No! You can come see Tara as many times as your health needs. Weekends included.
“Does Surface Medical accept health insurance?”
No. Happily, no. Perhaps the most critical distinction in our model of care centers on a direct, personal relationship between you and your provider. We see no reason for any insurer to have a voice about either the quality or the cost of your family’s 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-services arrangement frees us from the typical contractual agreements that prevent providers from offering wholesale prices on laboratory tests, imaging, and medications.
