Affordable Primary Care

For the Entire Family

The health of you and your family are the entire focus. Direct Primary Care is being brought forth from a historic time in medicine where the family doctor is truly part of the family. Because of its flexibility and individually focused design, the DPC membership program takes care of most of your needs. DPC saves you money by avoiding inflated costs from insurance middlemen.

Q&A

Direct primary care is an arrangement between a provider and a patient whereby the patient pays the provider a monthly fee for access to consults and services that the doctors office provides. There are many benefits to having a direct relationship with your doctor. First, the physician is there to take care of you. They are not there to check boxes for your insurance company. Multiple studies have shown decreased rates of hospitalization, fewer medications utilized, fewer days off from work and overall better outcomes with a direct primary care arrangement.

Compass Cellular Healing has intentionally been designed from its inception with a determined effort to ignore the conventions of modern medicine. The attitude of “going with the flow” and third-party influencers have put medicine in a distasteful situation for patients and doctors. New federal laws increase the influence of administrators and insurance payers in how your health care delivered. This shapes the system to suit the needs of the masses. However, healthcare policy ignores what is best for YOU — the independent and individual patient. Individual patients have lost access to personal care.

Primary Care includes the care and management of but not limited to; traditional health problems like diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, cold & flu, acute GI issues, IV therapy, lacerations, skin lesions, and more. For those who need a little more than Primary Care. Our Functional Medicine Membership specializes in the treatment a variety of chronic diseases such as lyme disease, mold toxicity, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and parkinson’s disease.

The DPC Membership includes unlimited 15 minute urgent care visits for acute diagnosis and ongoing medical conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and acute GI issues.

Unfortunately DPC monthly membership fees and office-based care or services are not covered by insurance. However, HSA funds can be used to cover the costs associated with all our membership options. As physicians have had tougher times dealing with insurance companies, more physicians have opted for a direct primary care arrangement. This allows you to use your health insurance for what it was intended to be used for. Should you have surgery or a major illness, such as cancer or an accident you would have insurance to help cover the cost associated with those episodes. You would never use your car insurance to have the oil changed and the windshield wipers replaced. You would only use your car insurance in the unlikely event of an accident. Therefore, you would only use your health insurance for a major accident. The basic things like a laceration suture or an office visit for a cold are usually covered in the arrangement with the physician or are offered at a very low cost in addition to the primary monthly fee. Also, because we know you directly, and we don’t have to deal with your insurance company we do our best to keep you out of the office. 98% of all primary care visits can be handled over the telephone. We aim to do this for you and make your life easy. If you have to come to the office you can rest assured that they were likely be little or no wait time and that we will quickly move to get you treated and out of the office.

Membership patients pay a monthly fee to have access to an array of medical services and treatment plans. While memberships are not required; Dr. Lee Howard requires a fee of $450/hr for patient consultations outside of membership.

Yes we do. We understand getting quality healthcare for everyone in your family can be costly. For this reason we have capped the membership rate at just $275/month for families with four or more individuals in a unit.
