Membership based primary care offers more personalized experience with your doctor.

There are potential drawbacks of membership based primary care:

  • Cost: The membership fee is an additional cost for patients who have traditional insurance. This can be offset by many factors.  (Click here to see use case scenarios.)

  • Limited Availability: Membership based primary care doctors often limit the number of patients that they accept. This is to ensure high-quality care, easier access and shorter wait times. This can make it difficult for some patients.


Overall, membership-based primary care aims to enhance the patient-doctor relationship, improve access to primary care services, and provide a more personalized and efficient healthcare experience.
