f.a.q.'s > All Questions > Why is there a practice membership fee?

Without this I’d need to have many more patients (and therefore not be able to provide the same level of responsive and personal service) or charge much more for each service provided.

This fee includes services that are not typically covered by health plans and for which some medical practices charge itemized fees. This includes telephone and email consultations, medication refills, and completion of medical forms.

Having a practice membership fee allows me to know exactly how many patients I have at any time so that I can keep my practice to the planned low number of patients.
