As a patient of Green Hills Direct Family Care, will I still need insurance?
Yes. Although health insurance is NOT necessary for membership, we recommend that you do have insurance to comply with Federal Law. We do encourage patients to maintain some level of health insurance to help cover the costs of medical care that you receive from medical providers/facilities outside of our practice.
Insurance will help cover costs associated with, but not limited to, prescription medications, labs, imaging studies (X-rays, CT scans, MRI’s, etc.), specialist consultations, hospitalizations, and surgeries.
Green Hills Direct Family Care does not replace insurance, and ideally we encourage our patients to carry a high deductible or major medical plan or a plan with a health savings account, thereby ensuring financial help should hospitalization or referral to a specialist be necessary. You should consult with your insurance provider to help you find a plan that works best with our medical model and that will meet your specific needs.
