Could you imagine having your primary care physician’s direct cell phone number? Being able to schedule appointments within 72 hours? For a cost that may be less than your monthly cell phone bill?
No co-pays, no hidden fees.
Discounts on medications, labwork, and other services, which are often less than half the retail rates.
It’s time to re-imagine primary care, from the ground up. Direct Primary Care is a better system for both doctors and their patients, for our health, and for our economy. It’s personal, efficient, timely…it’s the future of healthcare.
I would be honored to join you on this journey.
Dr. Norman believes Primary Care should be affordable, accessible, and patient-centered. In her 10 years of practicing Primary Care, she found an ever-widening gap between the costs of basic services, and what insurance companies actually cover.
At Grace Health, you will not be penalized for bringing up medical questions and concerns during your annual physical. You will not spend hours on hold, trying to reach your primary care physician, only to be scheduled with a provider you’ve never met, and have to repeat your story all over again.
As a patient of Grace Health, you will have direct access to YOUR doctor, who you will see every single visit. You will have access to discounts on lab work, medications, and imaging studies, and Dr. Norman will use her industry knowledge to help find affordable ways of connecting you with the care you need.
Affordable, personalized, patient-centered. The way Primary Care should be.
Dr. Norman strongly encourages her patients to have insurance, to cover unexpected events, specialist care, and emergency department and hospital costs. As a Board Certified Family Medicine physician, Dr. Norman orders insurance-covered services such as colonoscopies, mammograms, routine labs, imaging and pap smears. Except in rare cases, the cost to you is the same as seeing a primary care physician who bills insurance for their visits. You may find, however, that Dr. Norman’s negotiated rates on labwork, imaging, and medications, are even more affordable than going through insurance!
Direct Primary Care is not insurance. Dr. Norman recommends that each of her patients carry insurance, or have a plan for covering unexpected expenses such as specialist co-pays, emergency department visits, and hospitalizations.
Grace Health keeps our costs low, by avoiding unnecessary expenses involved in working with insurance companies. Because most Concierge practices bill insurance, they require higher overhead for billers, coders, pre-authorization specialists, etc. They, in turn, pass these costs on to their patients.
Direct Primary Care is an affordable, patient-centered approach that cuts out the middle man, and saves you money.
Wisdom, tranquility, courage, and ease can, and do, exist side-by-side with the ravages of age, and infirmity. This state of flow, of moving with, and adapting to the challenges of life, while keeping our life goals firmly in mind, I call Grace.
Most primary care in the United States is “fee-for-service.” Doctors at these clinics are financially rewarded for shorter, more frequent visits. Anything not labeled “preventative” is paid for by you and your insurance, through a confusing system of deductibles, copays, coinsurance, and facility fees. You may or may not get to know your doctor personally, because they have panels of 1,500 patients or more. You pay high retail rates for imaging, labs, and medications.
Direct Primary Care gives you direct access to your physician right away, no deductible, no surprises. You always see YOUR doctor, not their office partner. They know you personally, because they have <500 patients. You get significant discounts on imaging, labs, and medications. Just one low monthly fee, less than a typical cell phone bill.
There is a one-time, nonrefundable enrollment fee of $100/patient or $200/family.
