"Cornerstone Family Medicine is a direct primary care family medicine practice.
NO HIDDEN COSTS
What this means is that we are committed to providing affordable and comprehensive care to patients of all ages (newborn and up) without the strain of billing insurance. All of our prices are transparent and upfront. There are no “behind the scenes” costs which you may experience with traditional insurance-based clinics.
SUBSCRIPTION BASED SERVICE
Direct Primary Care is a form of payment method for medical services performed within the primary care setting. This model involves patients paying “directly” for services provided out-of-pocket to the practice. The key here is that those out-of-pocket expenses are much less and more affordable than you may think. And, this becomes a contract between patient and physician, the way it ought to be, not your insurance company.
Over 75% of medical care in our country occurs in primary care. Direct Primary Care is an alternative model of providing for the costs that occur in the primary care setting at a much lower rate, thereby saving the healthcare system millions of dollars. Insurance is important for the remaining 25% to cover those catastrophic events, but when it comes to primary care, Direct Primary Care physicians can greatly reduce the costs of labs, x-rays, and procedures and transfer those savings to the patient."
