Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Is direct primary care membership like insurance coverage?

 A: No. There is no insurance and no indemnity protection provided with this membership program. Direct care membership may be paired with a high-deductible insurance plan, however, there is no guarantee that your membership fee will be applied toward your deductible by the insurance company. 

Q: Must a direct primary care member also have health insurance?

 A: No. Moore Family Practice is open to all, with or without insurance. Note that a membership does not remove you from liability under the Affordable Care Act to buy health insurance. 

Q: What about hospital costs?

 A: Our membership can be the perfect complement to a hospital/major medical insurance plan. However, your membership does not include hospital or specialist medical care. 

Q: How is my medical care paid for?

 A: All primary care and preventive medical care received from Moore Family Practice is paid for through this membership program.

Q: Why Direct Primary Care?

 A: Because I wanted a provider who I could see when I needed them.  Because I wanted somebody I could text real quick when I had a question.  Because I wanted to avoid spending $100 at urgent care when my pediatrician didn't have any openings for the next week.  Because I didn't want to wait an hour to see a provider and only get 5 minutes with them.  The list goes on, but it all comes down to this: I want to be a provider that is available whenever you need them.  If you are looking for the same provider, then you have found them.
