What is the main difference between Total Access Medical and general primary care practices?

Total Access Medical provides patients with solutions to their current healthcare frustrations.  By offering comprehensive concierge medical service, Total Access Medical offers patients an opportunity to receive focused and personalized medical care.  No longer will you have to waste time in a waiting room, schedule appointments months in advance, or be blown off by a physician that doesn’t have the time to really listen to you.

What does this service cost?

Annual enrollment fees can be as little as $6.00 a day. Payment may be made on an annual, semi-annual, quarterly or monthly basis.  You may even be eligible for reimbursement through a pre-tax vehicle. Imagine personalized health care and medical management for less than the cost of a premium cup of coffee.

Does my insurance cover the annual enrollment fee?

Commercial insurance plans do not cover the Total Access Medical enrollment fee.  However, it is recommended that patients continue to utilize their traditional insurance coverage for prescriptions, hospital services, specialty care, and other like services which are not covered by this program.

I am a Medicare patient. How does my insurance plan apply to this program?

Although Medicare rules and guidelines are quite complicated, Total Access Medical welcomes all Medicare recipients. As with other commercial insurance plans, Medicare does not cover the Total Access Medical fee. Both patients and TAM physicians agree not to submit any claims to Medicare for reimbursement.

How do I reach my doctor after hours?

Patients are provided with their TAM physician’s personal cell phone in case of emergency after hours. Total Access Medical also maintains an answering service with 24/7 live operators who are able to connect directly with TAM physicians. You will also be provided your TAM’s physician’s personal e-mail address for any non-emergent issues or questions that may arise.

What happens when my doctor gets sick or is on vacation?

At the times when your personal TAM physician is unavailable, another TAM physician will be available to you.

What do I do when I need a specialist?

If requested, your TAM physician will coordinate your care with specialists, allowing for expedited appointments and timely follow-up.

I spend 6 months out of the year out of the area. Is it still a benefit to sign up?

Yes. If you spend a lengthy period away from the location where your TAM physician is based, your TAM physician is still able to coordinate your care with the physicians and hospitals in your secondary area. Most importantly, you will still have the opportunity to communicate with and be cared for by a physician that is dedicated to your well-being, regardless of residence.

What if I decide to end my relationship with Total Access Medical?

After the first year of enrollment, patients may terminate their Program Agreements with 30-days notice. There is no penalty for early termination and a prorated portion of the membership fee may be refunded.
