Direct Primary Care
Direct Primary Care: Personal, Affordable, Accessible
Our focus is providing personalized, affordable, and convenient care to our patients from birth to end of life. Direct primary care is a patient care model that eliminates the hassle of insurance, including the complex and costly billing system, in order to provide high-quality care for a low membership fee. The idea is simple: the patient pays a monthly membership fee in exchange for direct, unlimited access to our providers, as well as a variety of membership benefits, treatments, and discounted services and labs. If you have questions about how direct primary care works.

Healthcare Solutions for Employers
Direct Primary Care offers a host of health benefits, but employers have a unique opportunity to realize substantial financial savings as well. Particularly when paired with a self-insured or level-insured solution, we have found consistent and substantial savings for employers of all sizes even as employee satisfaction with benefits consistently and dramatically improves.

What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care is a membership model of healthcare that puts patients first by eliminating the hassles of insurance. It also means treating patients when they need it. No more waiting weeks to see your medical provider and having better access to communications directly with the medical provider. We have cut out the restrictions of insurance which typically leaves medical providers buried in an endless pile of paperwork. It allows for the medical provider to return to the root values of clinical excellence and compassionate knowledge of every patient. In every aspect of family healthcare we promise to do our best at accessibility, convenience and affordability.
How does Direct Primary Care differ from traditional healthcare?
Victress Health and Wellness is a place for you to have a more personal experience by having easier accessibility with your medical provider. It is a monthly or annual membership model in which the medical provider has a smaller group of patients to enable closer contact with the medical provider. This means that the medical provider can treat the patients more timely when they need care. The medical provider can spend more time with the patient during office visits if they are needed. In addition, the patient benefits by being more easily equipped to communicate directly with the medical provider via email, text and phone contact.
Do you accept traditional insurance?
No, and for good reason! By cutting out the restrictions and chaos created by billing insurance companies, we can provide unparalleled care without the need for co-pays and unexpected medical bills.
Perhaps the most critical distinction in our model of care centers on a direct, personal relationship that is special with your medical provider. We forego insurance payments in order to save our patients from the intrusive decisions that inevitably follow with those third party payors. This direct fee-for-service arrangement helps us to offer wholesale pricing on laboratory testing, imaging and some medications as the practice grows.
If I have insurance, can I join Victress Direct Primary Care?
Yes. You can join the practice if you have traditional insurance. Your insurance will still cover any care that you receive outside the Concierge. (additional lab testing, imaging, prescriptions, and hospitalizations).
If I have Medicare, can I join Victress Direct Primary Care?
Yes. As a Medicare recipient can join the practice as well. You will need to sign a one-time waiver declaring that neither you or your medical provider will directly bill Medicare for our services at the Victress. However, Medicare will still cover any care that you receive outside the Concierge. (Lab testing, imaging, Prescriptions and hospitalizations prescribed by our office). We encourage you to continue your Medicare coverage outside the Concierge.
Do I still need to have health insurance if I join the practice?
Yes. We highly recommend that our patients continue a major medical plan with a high deductible and health savings account to ensure financial coverage should hospitalization or referral to a specialist become necessary.
Can I use a Health Savings Account?
Unfortunately, no. Currently the IRS does not allow for reimbursement of direct primary care membership. But, you can use your HSA for additional labs, testing, or our other services including physical therapy, functional medicine, and psychotherapy.
What if I have to go to the hospital or see a specialist?
Our attempt is to provide the best care and by improving access to your medical provider, we would do our best at preventing or reducing hospitalizations and specialty referrals. In instances where those types of care are required, your medical provider will certainly work with and communicate with those outside entities to give patients continuity of care. In some cases, we may rely on those specialized caregivers to assist in the management of your treatment.
Can children become members of the practice?
Yes. We are happy to accept the children of any age of our enrolled families. If a child should need to join without an adult, their membership fee is the lowest adult rate at $45/month.
At this time, we are not able to provide routine vaccinations for young children but we will work happily with you to assist you in arranging those within the community.
Is there anything my membership does not include?
We do not provide obstetric care during your pregnancy but can provide pre-conception counseling and care related to your personal health. We will continue care for you and your newborn after delivery.
We do not carry any controlled medications in the practice and do not routinely prescribe narcotic pain medications for chronic pain.
We do not provide hospital care but we will coordinate care with your hospital care team while in the hospital. We have a system that alerts us if you are admitted, but we would love to hear from you as soon as you are able to let us know. We will see you as soon as you need when you are discharged and will have access to all your records.
Can I contact my medical provider after hours, and how?
Yes. Sometimes emergent illness and injury do not respect regular office hours and therefore you may contact the medical provider after hours for emergency care or direction. We will provide a secure patient portal to provide contact directly with your medical provider. Our goal would be to provide great, accessible care during regular office hours however, for those emergencies after hours, the patient would have access to receive advising from the medical provider. Many illnesses can be diagnosed and treated with a simple conversation via phone, email or text messaging. Even when you are away from your medical provider on travel, you can receive communication to provide the most appropriate care.
What is included in my membership?
The membership would include as many office visits as needed. This would include phone visits, and any form of electronic visit with the medical provider regarding your care. A yearly Executive Physical or Comprehensive Physical (based on age) with general laboratory testing is included annually with your membership. Basic in-office testing would include general laboratory tests, strep testing, basic urine analysis among other common in-office testing.

Membership can be paid monthly or annually, however you choose to enroll.
