* One PSA and Pap Smear test per year is also included. Additional PSA/Pap Smear tests will incur an additional fee.

Insurance

Insurance

Under this model, WE DO NOT BILL INSURANCE, which means we can work directly for you, not the insurance company or corporations. That means there is no need for co-pays or deductibles for your primary care and you won't get any surprise bills from our office. You pay, instead, an affordable, flat monthly fee directly to us for the care and services provided, even if you have multiple medical issues. You may use your insurance to pay for visits to specialists, the ER, hospital stays, X-rays, and extended labs not covered under membership.

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. Health Spending Accounts (HSA) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) may cover certain medical expenses provided so we encourage you to check with your HSA/FSA organization on coverage possibilities.

 

Please note that the DPC membership program is not a comprehensive health insurance and only supplies specific primary care services.

What Patients Say

"Benton’s office has always been AMAZING with our family!! They helped us keep our child (now 3.5 year sold) out of the hospital due to a horrible virus when she was less than a month old!! They are so friendly and respectful of parents choice! I wish there were more than 5 stars to rate them! We love them!"

Direct Primary Care FAQs

  • Does insurance cover functional medicine?
    In selection of laboratory testing, we do try to select labs that may be covered by your insurance when possible but are not always able to do so. Again, consider this an investment of your health. If a “covered” test does not provide the information necessary to help us get to the root cause of your issues, we will not waste your time or money as it defeats the purpose of the program. Remember that the purpose of this program is to get you to optimal health and you are seeking or services based on the fact that the current system is not achieving this. Wellness and healing programs are not generally covered by insurance. We do accept Care Credit to cover Functional Medicine Programs but not DPC. You can set up your account here: https://www.carecredit.com/ Although we do not provide billing services, the patient is welcomed to submit any portions of their program that may be covered to their insurance company as consideration for reimbursement. You will be provided a spreadsheet breaking down the components of your program at the time of purchase. We are also happy to provide you with an encounter note for any face-to-face visit included in your package.
  • Can I use my HSA or FSA card to purchase these services?
    Certain services may be covered by these spending accounts. However, we encourage you to inquire with your organization for direct answers of coverage before using your card. You may also want to visit IRS.gov to obtain publications online regarding medical and dental expenses
  • Does my Medical Cost Share cover these services?
    Certain service may be covered but certainly at the discretion of your cost sharing group. Again, we encourage you to inquire with your cost sharing group on the possibility of coverage.
