WHY CONTRACT DIRECTLY BETWEEN THE PATIENT AND PROVIDER?
In the traditional fee-for-service insurance based model, providers are reimbursed for physically seeing patients and as such are encouraged to see as many as possible in a given day. At Family Medicine of North Hampton we charge an affordable fee (that can be broken down into monthly, quarterly or a single year payments) that allows us to offer you outstanding, individualized care. Want more time with your provider? Great, we can do that. Have a problem that can be handled over the phone? No need to come in, we can call, text or video conference.
DO I STILL NEED INSURANCE?
Yes. Everyone needs catastrophic coverage because when a medical emergency occurs it will be expensive. For patients who need to see a specialist routinely or require expensive specialty medications, you will need reasonable insurance coverage. There are 'high deductible' plans that pair well with our DPC model as well as several other cost sharing options. We will share the cost share options shortly.
I HAVE GREAT INSURANCE COVERAGE, WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
That's great. Here at Family Medicine of North Hampton, in addition to offering cost saving benefits on things like labs and medications to our patients, we also offer great health care. Are you tired of waiting two weeks or more to get an appointment with your doctor? We offer same day or next day appointments, if needed. When you do finally get in to see your doctor do you feel rushed? Our appointment times are extended and tailored to meet your needs with times ranging 30-60min or more per visit. Tired of navigating the phone tree and triage system at your current office? No phone trees here.
I DON'T HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE. CAN I BECOME A MEMBER?
Our annual fees are not currently covered Medicare service.
HOW MANY PATIENTS DO YOU CARE FOR?
We will be capping the practice at 650 patients.
WHAT IF I AM HEALTHY AND RARELY GO TO THE DOCTOR?
Cheers to your good health. At Family Medicine of North Hampton, we have the time to focus on preventative care and lifestyle management to help keep you and your family healthy. When those rare, pesky, acute needs do pop up we will be here to help.
