Dr. Tess Garcia - GFM Weight Management

If you’re looking to stay healthy as long as possible, manage chronic conditions proactively, and save on your healthcare costs, a direct primary care relationship may be for you! As a direct care patient, you’ll pay one monthly fee and receive a whole host of preventative care and healthcare necessities monthly — plus an annual, in-depth medical evaluation.

What is direct primary care?

It’s medicine the way it used to be, your Family Physician caring for you when you need to be cared for, not being shoved off to a lower level practitioner until you can fit into the doctor’s busy schedule when she can take time away from meeting insurance company requirements . . . and then getting five minutes of her time, ten if you’re lucky. It’s seeing your doctor when you need to, not when the insurance company says so. It’s same-day appointments when possible or next day at the least.  And it’s enough time with your doctor to be able to address all your concerns.  It’s what medicine used to be.

Is there a catch?

I don’t accept insurance or file insurance for you. It’s a straight monthly fee, in many ways like a membership. If you see me once, you pay that fee. If you see me twice a month, that fee covers it. If you see me three times a month, it’s still the same fee. So what’s the catch? Well, if you don’t see me during a month (or for two months), you still pay that fee. Direct primary care also won’t cover ER visits or hospitalizations, but it’s perfect for high deductible insurance policies and health savings accounts. Additionally, you should have a wraparound policy in keeping with the Affordable Care Act.
