What kind of practice is Your MD?
Your MD is a patient focused primary care doctor’s office specializing in Family Medicine. We are Mequon’s first Direct Primary Care Clinic. Our goal is to provide high quality healthcare that is easily accessible at an affordable price.
What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care is an innovative healthcare model that puts the patient first by eliminating the third party, insurance companies. This allows us to greatly reduce our operating expenses and pass those savings along to the patients, all while giving the highest quality primary care. It’s all about bringing back the way medicine used to be. Having a personal relationship with a physician who knows who you are and knows your personal health needs. The doctor patient relationship is just as the name suggests – direct.
Is membership at Your MD insurance?
No, membership is not an insurance plan.
Do you accept insurance?
No we do not accept traditional insurance or Medicare/Medicaid.
As a patient of Your MD, will I still need health insurance?
Yes. We recommend that our patients continue to carry both a major medical plan and when possible a health savings account to ensure financial help should hospitalization or referral to a specialist be necessary.
If I have insurance, why would I see a doctor who doesn't bill my insurance?
Two reasons. Quality of care and affordability. Often, the charges incurred for an office visit at Your MD are less than if we billed your insurance. If you have a high deductible plan, on average, your cost of an office visit at Your MD is 50-75% less than what is billed at a conventional clinic.
At the end of each visit you will receive a medically coded invoice that you may submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement as an “out of network” provider. The only exception is if your insurance is Medicare or Medicaid. If you are insured by either of these programs, you cannot submit our invoice.
Will I benefit from Your MD even if I don’t require frequent medical attention?
Of course. We might argue that everyone benefits from a service tailored directly for them. That’s why we offer custom healthcare. Our practice is devoted to the maintenance of your good health.
Together, we’ll build a comprehensive and intimate knowledge of your health, an invaluable understanding rarely seen in today’s large clinic healthcare model.
If I have Medicare, can I still join Your MD?
Yes. You need to sign a waiver declaring that neither your nor Your MD will directly bill Medicare for covered services. Your Medicare benefits will otherwise remain unchanged and can continue to be used for all other medical care received outside of Your MD.
What if I need to see a specialist or go to the hospital?
In instances where this type of care is required, Dr. Lewis and Dr. Moraski will work with any specialist.
