Does Health Insurance Cover Concierge Medicine?

Does health insurance cover concierge medicine? Are there strategies for getting the most out of your health insurance with respect to concierge medicine?

The answers are: sometimes, and yes.

How Concierge Medicine Works

Concierge medicine is a heath care model in which a patient pays a fee – monthly, biannually or annually – directly to their doctor for the practice’s services. Under this model, consumers have access to their doctor or another physician in the practice whenever they want. Patients can make same-day appointments with little or no waiting.

This framework is similar to an arrangement of a client who keeps an attorney on retainer. Such clients can obtain legal services whenever they need them and don’t pay by the hour or case.

Concierge Medicine Costs

As for costs, the annual fee to subscribe to most concierge medicine practices ranges between $1,200 and $3,000, according to conciergemedicinetoday.org. Some high-end concierge medicine practices that provide services to well-off patients can cost tens of thousands of dollars a year, experts say.

Most concierge medical practices don’t take health insurance.

Here is the breakdown of payment options that concierge medicine practices accept, according to conciergemedicinetoday.org:

  • Cash only, 51%
  • Medicare or some insurance, 29%
  • Medicare but no HMO or PPO plans, 14%
  • Insurance but no Medicare, 6%

Medicare or some insurance. If you have Medicare or other health insurance, you can join a concierge medical practice, but you’ll have to pay the membership fee yourself. Regarding Medicare, a concierge medical practice “can’t include additional charges for items or services that Medicare usually covers unless Medicare won’t pay for the item or service,” according to Medicare.gov. In those situations, your physician must give you a written notice, known as an “Advance Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage,” listing the services and reasons why Medicare may not pay. In such situations, a concierge practice may seek to impose additional fees for services not covered by Medicare, says Michael Seavers, the program lead in Healthcare Informatics at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He notes that Medicare isn’t only used by older people. Individuals under age 65 with certain medical conditions, like renal failure, may also qualify for Medicare.

Similarly, if you have private health insurance, you must pay the fee yourself to become a patient in a concierge practice, says Dr. Amna Husain, a pediatrician and the founder of Pure Direct Pediatrics. That’s a concierge practice in Marlboro, New Jersey. “This fee will include the normal care you received from a non-concierge doctor with the added personal medical amenities the concierge practice offers,” she says.

You may be able to use Medicare or other health insurance to pay for items and services the concierge practice doesn’t provide, which can include:

  • Prescription medications.
  • Lab work.
  • Imaging.
  • Emergency department visits and hospitalizations.

What Is Concierge Medicine? | U.S. News

Is concierge medicine right for you? Do you know how it’s different from a traditional medical practice?

(Getty Images)

For many people, the word “concierge” conjures an image of a uniformed or well-dressed employee at an expensive hotel who arranges tours and tickets for concerts for guests.

Concierge medicine is a health care model in which a patient pays a monthly, bi-annual or annual fee to see their physician, says Molly Moore, chief health plan officer at Decent, a startup based in Austin, Texas, that creates affordable health care plans for small businesses and self-employed professionals. Many of their clients have been hit hard by the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It’s a type of retainer model of care,” says Michael Seavers, the program lead in Healthcare Informatics at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Concierge medicine is similar to an agreement with an attorney on retainer, in which the lawyer provides legal services for a flat fee, rather than charging by the hour or case. A patient could call or see a doctor whenever he needed to, much the way a client could call a lawyer on retainer whenever he or she needed legal advice.

By contrast, patients at a doctor’s office in a traditional practice charge patients per appointment. Typically, when they see their doctor, people with health insurance are responsible for a copayment – a flat fee, which is a set amount for a specific service, like an office visit. Under this model, the patient typically also pays a copayment to specialists who are in his or her health insurance’s network of providers.

On the other hand, if a primary care physician in a concierge practice refers a patient to a specialist – say, a gastroenterologist – who is part of the service, there’s no additional charge. Patients can use their health insurance for referrals to specialists who are not part of the concierge group.

Zero or Shorter Wait Times

Doctors in concierge medicine groups typically have fewer patients than physicians who are in traditional medical practices. That means shorter waits for patients, who can access their doctor or another concierge physician immediately, even on holidays, Seavers says.

Patients can typically reach a doctor quickly by phone or text, and make an appointment the same day. Some concierge medical practices even make house calls.

“Concierge medicine is all about quickness of access,” Seavers says.

In the summer of 2017, Concierge Medicine Today published a piece that said 33% of physicians in concierge practices reported having no wait times. Another 31% said their wait times were less than five minutes.

An Option for People Who Are Uninsured or Underinsured

Many health care consumers have a high-deductible plan where nothing is covered until the deductible – in the thousands of dollars for some people – is paid out of pocket. Paying for a concierge plan might be less costly for these consumers than paying toward their deductible for their primary care needs, says Marc
