Frequently asked questions about Empowered Health.
Do you bill medical insurance?
No. Instead, we bill a monthly fee for membership into the practice directly to the patient. No additional costs are applied at the time of visits.
Can I bill my medical insurance?
Yes, you may bill your own insurance, as long as it is not Medicare or Medicaid. All private insurance companies may be billed with a superbill, which can be provided to you at the time of visit. Because of government laws, Medicare and Medicaid services cannot legally be billed from this type of practice.
What costs does the membership include?
The membership includes all physician interaction, either in the form of clinical visit, secure portal messaging or telemedicine. It does not include laboratory, imaging or other medical testing costs. It does not subsidize visits to any other physician or provider outside of the Empowered Health practice.
Do I need to keep my medical insurance?
Although we do not require insurance in order to be a member in the practice, we highly recommend that you have catastrophic medical insurance at a minimum. The level of insurance coverage you choose to have beyond that is entirely up to you and the needs of you or your family.
Do you treat minors?
At the present time, no.
What is the cost of membership?
This depends on the level of membership that you choose. Current membership information can be found here.
How do I sign up for the practice?
You can sign up for the practice by scheduling a New Patient appointment. This information is located here.
Can I cancel the membership?
Yes. We want you to be 100% satisfied with your decision to be part of the practice, and if that isn’t the case, you may cancel your membership at any time. *Please reference membership agreement for details.
What if I have to see a specialist?
This may still be needed. We work to provide safe, economical and convenient care. As such, in some circumstances you may be asked to see a specialty provider.
What if I want to switch between membership levels?
This is an option, however, we limit the number of transitions to 1 per year.
What is the one-time initiation fee for?
Because we put significant time and effort into onboarding a new patient, we charge an initiation fee to help cover this cost.
Is there a minimum required membership commitment?
Yes. As we spend significant time and energy with patient on boarding, we require a 2 month minimum commitment.
