Choose the level of service that best serves your family’s healthcare needs…
At Summit Medicine and Pediatrics, we know that your family’s healthcare needs will change, both over time, and because of acute illness. Therefore, we have designed our Direct Access Medicine® Practice accordingly, for the purpose of remaining as flexible as possible to meet your family’s changing healthcare needs over time, and offering a reasonable discount for providing service to multiple family members.
Immediate Family members (e.g. grandchildren, children, spouses, parents and grandparents) within two generations are eligible to take advantage of our Family Service Levels, and all family members must participate at the same level of service. Under our Family Service Levels, for every group of four family members, the first three family members each pay their chosen service level monthly fee, and the fourth family member’s monthly service is free. Fees for services specified as ala carte at each Service Level still apply for all family members.
We provide four levels of service for our families (see below). Each level bundles a different set of services provided, and our families are encouraged to choose a level of service that best suits their needs for any given month. Naturally, our families may change service levels at most once per month when their healthcare needs require such a change, and there is never a penalty or administrative fee associated with doing so. Within a group of four family members, should a single family member wish to change Service Levels, the discount for the fourth family member no longer applies. Changes in service level must be requested and confirmed in writing by the 10th of each month.
A ONE TIME $ 250 PARTICIPATION FEE per family member, for all four members of the family group, is paid at the onset of care. This fee allows us to prioritize the opportunity necessary to gather, transfer and input the health information for each family member into our own electronic health records. All monthly fees are paid automatically by credit card or electronic check on or after the 25th of each month for services rendered during the month (in arrears), and all additional fees for ala carte services at the lower service levels are paid automatically by credit card or electronic check on file on the day of service.
Patients are NOT required to commit to a multi–month agreement to continue services at Summit Medicine and Pediatrics; patients may cancel service at any time and for any reason! Cancellation of service MUST be performed in writing, and if a request for cancellation of service is received by the 10th of the month, there is no charge for services during the month of cancellation. Within a group of four family members, should a single family member wish to cancel service, the discount for the fourth family member no longer applies.
