FAQs for Patients

What is the membership fee? 

PartnerMD members elect to pay a fee to join our practice. In return, our doctors are able to reduce their patient panel and provide more individual attention to each patient (in addition to other membership benefits). Membership does not take the place of insurance. 

How does PartnerMD work with insurance? 

Insurance with PartnerMD works in the same manner as a traditional primary care. We will bill your insurance providers for services and you will be responsible for your co-pay. 

Do you take my insurance? 

PartnerMD accepts most insurance plans, including Medicare. See a current list of health insurance providers with which we participate.

Individual products within a plan may vary. To be certain that PartnerMD and your doctor are considered in-network with your health insurance, you must take your specific insurance product into account.

To do this, visit the website for the insurance carrier. Look for the “provider lookup” tool. Enter the exact product name for your insurance and the practice name to confirm in-network status.

Can I use my FSA or HSA account with PartnerMD? 

Yes. FSA and HSA funds are typically applicable only to medical services and may not be applied to your membership fee. However, as each program is different, it's important to verify the guidelines for your individual plan. For a deeper dive, please see this article: How to Use Your FSA or HSA for Concierge Medicine.

Can I pay month-to-month? 

Yes. Your membership can be invoiced annually, quarterly, or monthly. 

Am I locked into a contract? 

No. You can cancel at any time with 30 days notice in writing. If you've paid up front, we'll prorate a refund.
