What Is Not Covered
What does your membership fee NOT cover? Medical office supplies, such as surgical kits, injectable medications, or other consumables, may be billed to the patient directly at the time of service. Additionally, lab testing and medical imaging are not covered through your DPC membership. Please note, substantial cash discounts are available.
DPC membership does not cover catastrophic care or emergent care services to include surgery or specialty care. For this reason, Stratos DPC encourages it's members to obtain either a high-deducitable insurance plan or a healthcare sharing plan.
***Stratos DPC Physicians ARE NOT Participating HMO Providers***
Recommendations for Additional Healthcare Coverage
We recognize that while preventative care and the direct primary care model can help patients be healthier and reduce their risks from acute health issues like heart disease and cancer, individual patients are going to have need of emergency services. These are not covered by our membership fee. We suggest that each of our patients consider the following:
A high-deductible insurance plan. Your deductible should be high enough to keep your policy costs low but not so high that you are unable to meet it in an emergency. A health insurance broker can assist you in finding a plan that will meet your needs and level of risk.
A health care savings account. These accounts allow you to put a portion of your monthly paycheck aside, tax-free, to cover future medical expenses. You may be able to save enough in your account to cover the deductible of your catastrophic insurance policy. You can typically also use HSA funds for expenses like eyeglasses and contact lenses, hearing aids, medications, and other medical equipment or supplies. We recommend you speak with a tax attorney or your HR department representative regarding the use of an HSA for DPC services.
