Common Questions

What are you looking to answer
Are there any additional fees?

Your membership includes many services such as on-site labs (A1C, glucose, etc.), procedures, and telemedicine. For lab tests not offered in your clinic, you can choose to take advantage of our low third party cash prices. We have also negotiated cash prices for imaging in your area.

How do I pay for my membership?

Simply add a preferred credit card to your patient portal or present it at the clinic to begin paying. Your monthly membership charges will begin after your first appointment, and additional charges will be added at the time of the service.

How much is the copay per visit?

Your monthly Prime Meridian membership charge covers the cost of all office visits, telemedicine visits, sick visits, and well visits at our clinics. A co-payment or “copay” is a fixed amount set by an insurance company and since we do not accept health insurance, you will never be charged a copay.

Is there a charge for canceling my membership?

We understand that life doesn’t always go as expected. People move. Plans change. When our patients are in these situations, we do not currently charge a cancellation fee. After your membership is canceled, your position will be filled by the individual/family at the top of our waiting list (if the clinic panel is full). If/when you would like to restore your membership, a $129 re-activation fee will be assessed. If the clinic panel is full, you will be placed on the waiting list and notified when a position is available and the re-activation fee will be assessed at that time.

Can I get a discount if I pay a year in advance?

Yes. You will save 10% when you pay in advance for an entire year’s membership.

What if I'm on Medicare?

You are welcome to become a member and we would love to take care of your primary care needs. We will never accept payment from or bill any insurance, including Medicare.

Am I locked into one location?

You can reach your doctor through telemedicine and secure messaging from any location. But if you would like to receive treatment at another location, your membership gives you access all Prime Meridian Health Clinics.

When can I expect the clinics to open?

Announcements will be made on this website once the exact opening dates for these clinics are known. Fill out our register interest form in the “Find a Clinic” page and get email updates for locations opening up in your zip code.

Who has access to my medical information?

Only clinic practitioners and you. Please understand that anything discussed within the context of your visit is strictly confidential. ​You will have access to all your health record in the patient portal “records” section.

Do I still need health insurance?

Most of your health concerns can be addressed through your membership. However some services such as hospitalizations, emergency room visits, and specialty care are not covered by our plan. We recommend that all patients have sufficient health insurance to meet their needs outside the services offered by Prime Meridian Health Clinics™.

Will I still need to see specialists?

Many patients are sent to specialists simply because his or her primary care doctor does not have time to address the problem. Longer appointments in our model will help you avoid needing to see a specialist in many cases. However you will be referred to a specialist if needed, which will require a third party to cover those costs.

What kind of medical providers will staff the clinics?

Medical providers in the clinics will be licensed MDs, DOs, and other healthcare practitioners. We greatly value the doctor-patient relationship and only hire the highest quality doctors to take care of our patients. Our medical staff is experienced in both modern western medicine as well as integrative approaches such as essential oil treatment.

How do I know if you accept my health insurance?

We do not accept or bill your health insurance. Insurance companies set limits and dictate coverage policy based on controlling costs and financial models. When you join a Prime Meridian Clinic, any wellness plans or treatment options concerning your health will be based on decisions you make in partnership with your provider.
