Membership

A monthly membership is $200 per month. We offer a discounted rate of $2,000 for an annual membership, if paid in full. All wellness services are charged separately by the wellness clinicians providing the service, however as a wellness center member you have first access to all services, classes, and workshops.

Insurance

We do not participate with insurance providers or submit billing. Many people save significant money when switching to DPC. They find they can now elect to have high deductible insurance plans as all their primary care needs are being met. It’s always a good idea to retain at least an indemnity policy to cover unknown occurrences such as hospitalization or radiology procedures needed.
