Here’s a short list of membership advantages.
Benefits of Membership
- Discounted lab test pricing
- We continue to work with our lab vendors and suppliers to further reduce the cost of many tests. We commonly find that when we add new testing, patients realize a price reduction of nearly 80%.
- Our no cost labs included with membership are valued at over $300 per year.
- Discounted advanced imaging
- Through continued negotiation with local radiology groups we have been able to secure further reductions in the cost of advanced imaging like CTs and MRIs. Retail price for such tests often run $2500-$4000. Our negotiation has reduced these costs first to $450-$750 and now down to $250-$450.
- Discounted medications
- By running our own dispensary, we now offer acute care and maintenance medications at steep discounts of 60-90%. For instance, azithromycin dose packs are under $3, 100 count bottles of Metformin ER 500mg are about $6, and generic Lipitor is less than $7 for a three month supply.
