- Renting a small room to conduct patient visits
- Utilizing an online system that will perform everything from billing to scheduling and patient communication
- Keeping our office staff to a minimum: Jennifer is our solo practitioner, Steve is our biller and takes care of insurance verification and Sara is our virtual office manager.
- Steve and Sara both hold other day jobs, so their work is done during off hours.
- Utilizing an online dispensary which also offers us the ability to pass on significant discount pricing and ensure you obtain your medical grade vitamins from a safe place (unlike Amazon).
Jennifer does manage prescription medications for patients although the goal is to use minimal or eliminate prescription drug use. Prescriptions do require regular office visits and lab monitoring. If you have no refills left on your prescription, please request an appointment. We will not renew prescriptions without an office visit. This is simply safe medical practice.
We value providing holistic care which requires longer visit times and additional work outside of office visits. The monthly membership fee covers these essentials that are not reimbursed by insurance companies.
Jennifer accepts a very limited amount of new patients so there is a screening process where you will answer some questions and communicate with Jennifer via phone or e-mail to ensure Jennifer’s services will fit your needs.
We have found that to provide the highest level of service, a client membership program is necessary. Currently nearing patient capacity limits, we are sensitive to the level of service delivered. With the membership plan, we commit to providing the best care to members, including last minute appointments.
Membership is ideal for patients dedicated to working closely with Jennifer seeking assured care and timely appointments. When patient capacity is reached and Jennifer restricts her practice to new or non-member patients, you won’t have to worry about a lengthy wait to make an appointment.
For a list of benefits, head to our Membership Program page. One of the benefits that our patients most value is that they have access to longer appointment times, so we can really delve into their issues without the time limits of conventional medicine office visits.
No, this is a cash pay service not covered by insurance. Some insurance companies will allow you to use your FSA or HSA card to pay for your monthly fee. You should consult directly with your insurance for detailed coverage options.
Much preparation time and effort goes into your visit outside of the actual appointment. This includes portal messaging, refilling prescriptions, referrals, etc. This all to ensure a thorough wellness plan for you.
If we are “in network/contracted with” your insurance plan, our office will verify benefits coverage prior to your visit. Per our billing guidelines, we will do the following:
• Collect your “patient responsibility” at the time of service. This includes co-pays, deductibles, coinsurance and past due account balances.
• Submit a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement.
If you have an insurance plan we are not contracted with, we require an “at the time of service” payment. You will receive a discounted office visit charge with a receipt to submit to your insurance.
From our website membership page, click “Enroll membership” link. This takes you to a new site called Hint Health. Hint Health is the nation’s leader in managing secure online membership programs. You will enter your payment info and complete the registration process.
Upon membership enrollment, you will enter your credit or debit card information. Monthly billing on this card will occur the 15th or 25th depending on enrollment date. If a debit card, two very small deposits will transact into your account. As a security measure, you will need to portal message our office the transaction amounts so we can verify your account and activate your membership.
Jennifer offers “telemed” visits. Using an online meeting room, you can log-in to see each other via your computer cameras/screens. If you do not have access to a computer, the consult can be done via the phone. Oregon law and our office policy require an annual face-to-face visit in the office but the remainder of visits can be done via telemed.
Jennifer has agreed to provide primary care services to her members only if allowed by your insurance company . She will coordinate referrals to specialists as needed.
Please send a portal message to Jennifer indicating your medical concerns and urgency. Jennifer reserves appointment times for her members and will do her best to see you as these types of needs arise. Exceptions to this would be when Jennifer is out of the office.
