Does BFHC accept health insurance?
BFHC does not accept insurance.
Our doctors are paid directly by the patient, rather than through the patients’ insurance premiums. This typically provides patients with same-day visits for as long as an hour and offer managed, coordinated, personalized care. We are also able to provide our patients with wholesale labs, deeply discounted prescription prices, and other cost savings along the way. Direct Primary Care is our model of healthcare that puts patients first by getting rid of the red tape, allowing us to spend more time with you on your healthcare.
Should I Still Have Insurance?
Yes. You won’t need insurance for the general medical care we provide, but everyone should keep insurance for specialists and for the risk of catastrophic events, such as cancer, severe infection, or other major illness. We recommend our patients continue a major medical plan to ensure financial help should hospitalization or referral to a specialist be necessary.
Is this more expensive for me?
Direct Primary Care is an affordable option for everyone, not just the wealthy. In fact, our lower-cost practice accounts for an increasing proportion of the market. For example, a family of three (two adults and one child) could pay as little as $105 per month. Frequently, the sum of the membership fees and an augmented insurance plan—called a “wraparound” plan because it covers costly care beyond the scope of primary care—is lower than the cost of a comprehensive insurance plan by itself.
