Concierge medicine is a different approach to receiving health care. You pay a monthly or annual fee to Dr. Calm, receiving the most comprehensive care package in return.
Concierge medicine allows you to develop a trusting relationship with a dedicated health professional. You spend more one-on-one time with your doctor and can access their advice outside office hours.
This relationship with a dedicated doctor offers better outcomes than seeing a different provider each time, as you might with regular health care. Your concierge medicine doctor knows you well and understands your situation and needs, and you feel more comfortable talking to them.
You also receive a selection of specialized services and benefits that save you time and make health care a less stressful, more successful experience.
Concierge medicine programs typically include non-health services. For example, your membership entitles you to same-day appointments. You can also get direct access to your physician to discuss concerns and promptly arrange a consultation if required.
Other concierge medicine benefits include a care coordinator who handles the administrative side of your health care (such as billing and insurance), helps schedule appointments, and manages your prescriptions.
Concierge services focus on optimizing the doctor-patient relationship and providing personalized care. They add value rather than covering aspects of your medical care covered by insurance. For that reason, concierge services don’t typically include:
These medical services are billed to your insurance company as usual.
Concierge services are well worth considering because they make it easier for you to look after your health and well-being. They remove hassle and inconvenience, streamline the administrative processes, and ensure your experience is more pleasant and relaxing.
Enrolling in Dr. Calm‘s concierge medicine program takes away the stress from one area of your life. It forms part of Dr. Calm’s functional medicine approach to mental health care, which involves addressing all the causes of your condition — one of which is likely to be stress.
