Frequently Asked Questions About Direct Enrollment

How do I sign up directly to be a patient at your clinic?
You can print out, complete and sign the Enrollment Agreement form and bring it with you to your first visit, or you can fill it out at the clinic. Please bring your credit or debit card with to each visit for billing confirmation. 

How is this credit or debit card information used?
In signing the Enrollment Agreement, you agree to have us bill your credit or debit card automatically on the first day of each month for the previous month's enrollment fee.

Is there any co-pay for clinic visits?
No. Your monthly fee covers all your visits, phone calls and e-mail contacts as well as all tests done in the clinic. (See Guide to Patient Services.)

Can I pay my monthly fees by cash or check?
No. One of the ways we are able to provide you with low cost health care is by eliminating complicated billing procedures. Automatic charges to your credit or debit card dramatically reduces costs for you.

If I did not use your services during the previous month, will I be billed for that month?
Yes. When you sign up for our medical services you agree to pay on a monthly basis, whether or not you need our services that month.

Is there a limit to how many visits I can have in a year?
No. You and any enrolled family members may see your doctor as often as you need to.

If I joined the clinic directly, do I still need health insurance?
While health insurance is not a requirement, we recommend that you obtain some form of standard or catastrophic insurance in the event that you require emergency room care, hospitalization, specialty or long-term care. Insurance may help pay for some of these costs.

If I have health insurance, can I enroll as a patient in your clinic?
If you are covered by Medicaid, Medicare or private insurance, you may be able to enroll in a plan through your insurance that covers our services. If you have insurance that does not participate in our program, please talk to our staff about your options.

What about services that I might need outside of the clinic?
At times, your physician may refer you for tests or to see a specialist outside of our clinic. Though your monthly fee does not cover these services, we can provide you with a list of referral options, some of whom may offer discounted rates.

If I get pregnant, will this monthly fee cover my prenatal and hospital care?
No. We do provide comprehensive pregnancy care including preception counseling, prenatal, labor and delivery, postpartum and newborn care. Please contact us for more information about a payment plan for your prenatal and hospital care.  

Can my children receive your services if I am not enrolled as a patient at the clinic?
Yes. Your children can be enrolled even if you are not enrolled. We encourage everyone to have some kind of health insurance.

Can I stop using your services at any time?
If you choose to stop using our services or do not pay for our services per the Enrollment Agreement, you may not be able to re-enroll for six months. There is a minimum six-month enrollment period. If you end your enrollment prior to that, you will be charged a $200 early termination fee.

What if I have limited income?
You may qualify for financial aid. Please call us or come by the clinic for more information on how to apply for financial aid.
