Insurance is required to be compliant with the Affordable Healthcare Act. You may use your insurance to pay for visits to specialists, the ER, hospital stays, X-rays, and extended labs not covered under membership. You may use any insurance or choose catastrophic coverage.
BIM supplies specific primary care services and membership makes those services available to you for a single low monthly fee. BIM does not contract with any insurance organizations and care received at BIM does not go towards insurance deductibles. All patients are responsible for inquiring with their insurance or cost sharing organizations on the possibility of coverage & managing their billing process. BIM will not bill any organization for care provided. Dr. Benton has opted out with Medicare and Medicaid which stipulates that Medicare and Medicaid covered members cannot attempt to obtain insurance reimbursement for BIM services as well. Health Spending Accounts (HSA) may cover certain medical expenses provided so we encourage you to check with your HSA organization on coverage possibilities.
Please note that because the membership program is not a comprehensive health insurance and only supplies specific primary care services, you may want to consider purchasing health insurance to cover catastrophic medical expenses that may incur outside of this practice scope and to meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act to avoid paying a penalty. Cost Sharing programs such as Liberty Direct provide low cost insurance that subsidize Direct Primary Care memberships.
Dr. Benton IS accepting NEW PATIENTS into WELLNESS PROGRAMS (Functional Medicine)
If you need more than basic primary care to achieve wellness, we have Wellness Packages that focus on the 6 Pillars of health: Gastrointestinal/Immune, Neurology/Sleep/Energy, Emotion/Stress, Motion/Exercise, Hormones/Thyroid/Sex Hormones, and Mental/Spiritual/Emotional. You cannot get well if you focus on one part of your system. Once you finish the program, you should be ready to go back to your basic primary care needs.
