More and more medical practices are offering membership medicine—and for good reason. Membership medicine refers to a model in which patients pay a monthly or annual fee to a medical provider in exchange for a contracted bundle of services. Membership medicine is not a substitute for primary health insurance. Rather, it’s services that medical practices offer beyond a patient’s regular insurance.
At IndyCare, we offer a medical membership called the IndyPass, which grants members access to urgent care visits for acute illnesses and injuries, as well as other perks, for as little as $1 per day. What exactly are the the benefits of membership medicine and why might a person want to invest in the IndyPass by IndyCare? That’s what we’ll be discussing today! Here’s what you need to know.
The benefits of membership medicine
- You can receive care when needed
How many times have you or one of your family members needed to see a doctor on short notice, only to realize that your doctor’s office is closed or there are no available appointments that day? With the IndyPass by IndyCare, you are granted unlimited urgent care visits six days a week. This enables you to get the care you need, when you need it!
- Low co-pay
Sometimes, things come up that require you to see a doctor immediately, however, receiving same-day urgent care often comes with a hefty price tag. Many people even put off getting care, simply because they can’t afford it. At IndyCare, we do things differently and believe that getting care when you need it shouldn’t break the bank. With the IndyPass by IndyCare, you can walk in without an appointment (or schedule a same-day appointment) and receive care for only ten dollars. That’s it—really. No deductibles or surprise billing.
- Discounts on lab tests
With a medical membership, patients are often offered discounts on certain services—and the IndyPass is no different. Members receive a whopping 80 percent off lab testing performed in-house at IndyCare, as well as discounted ancillary services.
- Free annual perks
While the IndyPass doesn’t cover medical procedures, non-acute medical illnesses, vaccinations, or lab tests sent to an outside lab, it does provide members with some valuable free perks, including a free yearly physical and a free yearly flu shot. Plus, if we determine you require care from a primary or specialty care physician, we will connect you with a nearby provider to ensure you get the care you need.
