The wellness membership you pay for is not considered in any way a type of insurance. It entitles you to primary care services such as office-based services, telemedicine, home visits and other services. (See your Membership Agreement)
Better Care members are encouraged to be insured by a PPO, major medical plan or Medicare. This allows for provision of services outside the doctor’s office, such as catastrophic events, labs, radiological studies, specialty care and hospitalization. Medicare and other private insurances do not cover the fee.
