Do I still need insurance if I sign up with you?
Yes. We recommend that you remain insured in case of emergencies, hospitalizations, expensive studies, and specialty care fees. Your subscription fee does not replace your health insurance plan, although it may influence the type of plan you choose. (A lower premium plan with a higher deductible pairs well with DPC.)
How will I pay for things that aren’t covered by the monthly fee, like specialist visits, high cost procedures, imaging studies and hospitalizations?
You will use your insurance. Nothing between you and your insurance coverage will be affected by choosing Dr. Spiekermann as your physician. Additionally, you will be informed and will need to give consent beforehand, if ever Dr. Spiekermann recommends a study or test or referral that adds costs outside your monthly fee.
If I haven’t met my insurance deductible, will I have to pay full price for labs and X-rays?
If your insurance does not cover the cost of a lab, or you choose not to charge your insurance, then you will be responsible to pay the wholesale cost with no mark up by HouseCalls PLC.
Can I still see my specialists?
Yes. Choosing Dr. Spiekermann to be your Primary Care Provider changes nothing at all about any other care on-going or new.
I have Medicare. Can you still be my provider?
Yes. Both you and Dr. Spiekermann will have to sign a one-time waiver declaring that neither party will submit a bill to Medicare for services provided by HouseCalls PLC. Your Medicare coverage will stay the same.
