Does One Focus Medical Accept Health Insurance?
In a word, no. We forgo insurance payments in order to save our patients from the arbitrary, intrusive decision. This direct fee-for-service arrangement frees us from the typical contractual agreements that prevent physicians from offering wholesale prices on laboratory tests, imaging, and medications. One Focus Medical is able to care for some that don’t have access to excellent care. This is not possible under contractual obligations with insurance systems.
As a Patient of One Focus Medical, Will I Still Need Health Insurance?
Yes. We recommend that our clients continue to carry both a major medical plan and a health savings account, thereby ensuring financial help should hospitalization or referral to a specialist be necessary.
If I Have Medicare, Can I Still Join One Focus Medical?
Yes. You need only to sign a one-time waiver declaring that neither you nor your doctor will directly bill Medicare for our services. Medicare will still cover any laboratory testing, imaging, medications, or hospitalizations prescribed by our offices.
What Happens If I Need to Go to the Hospital or See a Specialist?
In providing superb care with unprecedented doctor access, we seek to prevent or reduce hospitalizations and specialty referrals. In those instances where those types of care are required, we will certainly continue to serve you during your hospital stay or to work closely with any specialist. In some cases, depending on the level of care and the sorts of expertise required, we may rely on those specialized caregivers to help us manage your treatment.
