Concierge Medicine & Medicare

Stacks Image 23
When you become eligible for Medicare, the health system suddenly can look a lot different. Each day more and more people are signing up for Medicare and the system can't keep up. You may have noticed you cannot see a doctor in a timely fashion, or you may be required to follow-up with a nurse practitioner or a physician assistant. Although you may be retired, you don't have all day to wait around a doctor's office.

The Concierge Option

Luckily you can still have a doctor who knows you and your health intimately.

With a concierge medicine doctor in your corner, you can count on having someone to answer your calls when you need them and look out for your best interests.

At Echelon-Health Concierge Medicine we are "opted-out" of Medicare which means that while we will not bill Medicare for any of your medical care, we can still refer you to doctors, prescribe medications, and order exams. This can get complicated when it comes to "Medicare HMOs" which have their own rules about what you can and cannot do outside the network. Also the HMO may require you to have an "in-network" physician for any referrals.

We encourage you to come in for a complimentary consultation to see if Echelon-Health Concierge Medicine is right for you.
