The Fine Print

HEALTHCARE TAILORED SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU

Part of making an informed decision regarding your healthcare is to understand exactly what your options are. Here we explain how Latitude Clinic works and how we can keep our prices so low for you. If you have any additional questions we are happy to answer them!

How we are similar to Concierge Care and Direct Primary Care (DPC)

Like Concierge Care and Direct Primary Care, Latitude Family Clinic offers: 

  1. Easy access by phone or text, we answer when you call or we call back quickly. We will not put you on time sucking holds and we will not send you into endless phone trees.

  2. Simple online scheduling with same and next day appointments. If you do not see an opening for when you need to be seen, give us a call and we will do our best to accommodate you. We will be constantly evaluating and adjusting our scheduling to make sure we have enough open spaces for our patients when they need to be seen. 

  3. Interaction with the Provider is available in office, by phone, text or video chat. There are some restrictions however, visits for DOT Exams, Work, Sports and School exams as well as any visit in which a controlled medication is refilled, must be in person. 

  4. We have a contract with Lab Corp to be able to obtain very low cost labs, typically 1/2 to 1/3 the typical cash price for labs. We are happy to pass these savings on to you. 

  5. In office EKG is provided as needed at no additional cost. 

Most importantly, have the peace of mind knowing we are here when you need us WITHOUT  the commitment of a membership fee. 

How we are different than Concierge and Direct Primary Care (DPC)

  1. You will pay for our services only when you use them, there is no monthly or annual membership fee. 

  2. We do not offer unlimited or hour long appointments. Our visit options are the Standard Visit which is up to 20 min in length and the Extended Visit which is 21 to 40 min in length.

Can I use my Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) to pay for my care at Latitude Clinic?
