Frequently Asked Questions
WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR A MEMBERSHIP?
When you join, you know right away that it isn’t a typical doctor’s office. Forget about the headaches and frustrations you experienced before. You now have a trusted physician ready to care for you.
You will have longer face to face time, better communication, and no wait times. You will be able to text me. You will be able to call me with any questions. My focus is keeping you healthy!
In the FreedomDoc membership model, patients are free to talk to their doctor whenever and wherever they need them, with no extra costs. This significantly increases access to a doctor and decreases the cost to a patient. Being able to talk to your doctor when you need them has tons of benefits.
WILL I SAVE MONEY?
The only change is that I’ve partnered with resources that may save you additional money if you would like to pay cash rather than submit to insurance. For example, I’ve partnered with labs, imaging centers, and a prescription wholesaler for dramatically lower cash-based pricing. However, if you still would like to submit to your insurance you are welcome to do so. I can provide you with those options that allow you to make the right decision based on your situation.

WHAT ABOUT LABS, IMAGING, AND PRESCRIPTIONS?
Through my national FreedomDoc network, we’ve partnered with local companies that provide my patients discounts for paying with cash. However, if you still would like to submit to your insurance you are welcome to do so.
WHAT IF I NEED TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL?
CAN I USE MY HEALTH INSURANCE?
DO I STILL NEED HEALTH INSURANCE?
We recommend you continue to have some type of health plan coverage. If you are looking for a cost-effective way to obtain catastrophic care (childbirth, surgery, accidents, etc…), we recommend you enroll in a healthshare enroll in a healthshare. This new type of health plan is affordable, provides great service, and is actually useful to alleviate any emergency medical bills.
WHAT IF I AM ON MEDICARE OR MEDICAID?
CAN I PAY WITH MY HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNT (HSA)?
Some patients utilize their health savings (HSAs), flexible spending (FSAs) or health reimbursement accounts (HRAs) to pay our fees as “qualified medical expenses”. Legal experts have recommended these patients follow the best practice of paying annually or semi-annually. If requested, we can provide you with an invoice and/or submit a notice to your employer if any questions arise about our programs. Please note that we cannot provide tax or legal advice, and you should consult your own tax advisor for guidance.
IS THERE A LONG-TERM COMMITMENT?
My service contract is for one year. If you are unhappy with the services OR for any reason wish to cancel your contract, you may do so with a 90-day notice. Any services already performed (i.e. preventive exams) will be itemized for payment. Any refunds will be granted after the service items are paid. All contracts are automatically renewed unless a 90-day notice is received by us not to renew.
