Hey everyone, Bridge to Health, P.A. is NOW open.
It's called Direct Primary Care. We love it, our current patients love it, and we think you'll love it to.
Here's the gist: we don't accept insurance to pay for in-house services, which will help you save money. We love to see patients that have insurance. You need healthcare insurance for hospitalizations, ER and specialist visits, X-rays, outside labs, medications, etc., but you don’t need it to see us.
We offer a monthly membership with a one time registration that covers most of the care we give including unlimited office visits (wellness, acute care, disease management, sports physicals), access to provider staff via phone/text (including after-hours), in-office lab testing and procedures (see covered tests/procedures), coordination of care with specialists, hospitals, and other care
providers, and a whole lot more.

We're a Direct Primary Care (DPC) practice. DPC is a unique approach to healthcare and our patients love it. So, how is it different?
Did you know that most Primary Care Providers have between 2,500-3,500 patients? We limit our practice to 600 patients total. That means that your provider spends more time with you when you need her. Plus, when she is not actively seeing a patient, she is able to help coordinate your care and research your treatments.
Bridge to Health, P.A. does not bill insurance plans so you won’t have a middle-man in your primary care. Decisions about your healthcare will be made by you and your provider without the impersonal management that comes from third-party payers. Instead, patients pay a monthly membership which can save money and covers quality care. Give it a try, and you’ll quickly see for yourself the value of this approach!
Forget scheduling appointments weeks in advance. Typically you'll get a next-day appointment - and it'll be free.
Contact us whenever you want, however you want - email, text, in-person, even video chat. You're part of the family.
In-house labs will be provided at a discounted price. Outside lab pricing negotiated for discounted rates. Medication prices discounted with cash prices and with various available coupon services. In the future, will look into dispensing medications in-office.
