Some Facts About Health Care

 

In June of 2013 Advanced Family Health moved to a MEMBERSHIP-BASED PRACTICE MODEL.

This new medical service requests that patients pay a YEARLY MEMBERSHIP FEE, based upon the patient’s age and level of membership desired. This new model allows us to focus on prevention and individualizing the care to each patient’s needs. It also ensures longer appointment times so both patient and physician feel less rushed and can have the time to develop a healing relationship built upon trust and respect.

There are three different levels of membership to choose from:


A) Elite Membership focuses on early detection of common diseases including thyroid disease, heart disease, peripheral arterial disease, abdominal aneurysms, stroke risk, body fat testing and hearing loss. For those seeking to go beyond just early disease detection and move towards MAXIMIZING their health and wellness, we have the B) Exceptional Wellness and C) Exceptional Wellness Plus plans. These advanced levels allow members to analyze their optimal diet and supplement needs, gut health, individualized fitness assessment and recommendations, genetic risks for certain diseases, take healthy cooking classes, fitness trainer sessions, assistance with sleep and stress management and 2 FREE hours of summary and analysis of these options with Dr Bennett.

A patient’s insurance will be utilized for all other office visits, including Well Exams (ie paps, physicals) and sick visits. Copays and deductibles still apply for these visits.

Below are the yearly membership options by age:

Birth to 29 years: NO FEE (and no membership tests)

Membership options can be paid for in one of 3 ways:

  1. Yearly lump sum, for which we will bill you (cash, check, credit)
  2. 6 month installment payments x2, for which we will bill you (cash, check, credit)
  3. Monthly payments x12 (automatically debited from your bank account)

These fees cannot be billed to your insurance; however the fee may eligible to be paid from a Health Savings Account (HSA) or a Flexible Savings Account (FSA).

For families, we offer a 10% discount if 2 or more immediate family members participate. For example, if a husband and wife who are 45 yrs old sign up they would owe $2,700 (ie $1,500 + $1,500 = $3,000 - 10% discount {$300} = $2,700).

Our goal, as always, is to work with each individual patient to maintain and preserve optimal health throughout their life. This practice model will give us and you the keys to unlock that potential.
