Do you see kids?
Do I need an appointment?
Do you take Medicare?
Since the enactment of the Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare") in January 2014, everyone should have insurance-and if you don't, you should get it at the next open enrollment. In the past, insurance companies could exclude people due to pre-existing conditions, but that is no longer allowed, so there is no excuse not to have insurance.
If you do not have insurance, our prices reflect Medicare costs and are as low as we can afford to go. The limited visit is $70 and covers most simple issues like sore throat, cough, sinus infection and bladder infection. This visit takes about 10 minutes, you can't be on any other medication except birth control pills, and you have not already been recently treated for the same problem. If you take other medications or have already been treated, then the visit costs more.
We understand that you want to know how much your visit is going to cost before you come in, and we do our best to give you an accurate estimate. But remember, it’s only an estimate. The more information you give our staff over the phone, the better their estimate will be. We can give a fixed rate for some standard services-like immunizationsw, lab tests and most physical exams, but we can only guess about everything else.
The cost of your visit depends entirely on how much time you need to spend with the doctor. If you have a complicated problem or a lot of issues to talk about, then it costs more. You might think you can lower the cost of your visit by just not telling us about your past medical history, the medicines you’re taking, or the treatments you’ve already had for this problem, but that only hurts you. Without all of your information, we could make a serious mistake in your treatment, which would “cost” you a whole lot more in the long run. You deserve to receive excellent medical care, but you are an important part of that. Don’t sell yourself short just to save a few bucks.
