Get Started With Concierge Medicine

What is Concierge Medicine?

Concierge Medicine, or relationship-based medicine, is personalized, accessible care. Concierge physicians have hundreds of patients compared to the thousands traditional primary care doctors see. This allows for better service from the physician - longer, more frequent appointments, 24/7 availability, and preventive care versus reactive care.

Traditional Primary Care Vs. Concierge Primary Care

In today's frustrating healthcare world, there is often little time for casual conversation and niceties. The average time it takes to see a traditional primary care doctor is 24 days. The average wait time in the waiting room is 25 minutes, and when you finally get into the exam room, you experience an additional 16 minutes of, you guessed it, waiting. 

Luckily, Connected Health’s concierge care is the future of healthcare. 

Connected Health is for people who want value for what they are spending on their healthcare. They want to make an investment in their own health and wellness. They appreciate a practice that is not merely sick care, one that is rooted in being proactive and preventative. No one only gets sick from 8am-4pm Monday-Friday. We believe that having 24/7 relationship-based medical care will save you time, money, and lead to better health. 

Leave behind traditional primary care and get started with next-level concierge medicine at Connected Health!

How does this work with my current insurance plan?

Connected Health does not participate with any insurance company. The membership fee is not covered by insurance. Individuals who want to be part of a smaller, more personalized service pay this fee directly out of pocket. We understand this is a different model than you are used to. However, data shows that comprehensive primary care saves patients money over the long term.

Do I still need insurance? 

Health insurance coverage is, of course, your personal choice. We do believe having insurance is important. We encourage our patients to maintain other coverage for services that might be needed outside of our care, such as specialists and emergency room visits. Our service pairs perfectly with today's high-deductible plans. This is something we discuss in greater detail before your first physician visit.

I have Medicare. Can I still join?

Absolutely! But just like private insurance, our fee is not reimbursable under Medicare. Your Medicare coverage will remain the same for you as it has before.

What happens if I need to go to the ER or become hospitalized?

Our doctors work with a group of reliable hospital physicians who can be entrusted with your admission and care. Our medical team will work closely with the hospital staff and specialists to continue quarterbacking your care during your stay, and after.

Who will care for me when my physician is on vacation?

Your physician will still be available to you by phone any time he or she is away. When your personal physician is away, another doctor will be here to assist with any medical needs that come up. As a patient, you'll be notified in advance of your doctor's unavailability.

Do you make house calls? 

Yes! We have an optional program for house calls. Sick visits, exams, even blood draws can take place right in the comfort of your home or office.

Do I need to join in order to utilize the medical services?

Many of our services can be purchased à la carte; no membership required!

Do you offer any of your services to companies?

Yes! There are many ways we can work with companies to help meet the needs of your employees while helping your company meet its health savings goals. From testing, to telemedicine, many of our services can be offered to employers. We encourage you to call to discuss your specific company needs.

I have to cross a river to get to you?

Yes, but we believe your health is worth the drive! Our building is conveniently located in Wexford off I-79. Your health is an investment, not an expense. And with telemedicine, many appointments can take place virtually from the comfort of your home.
