Welcome to Megunticook Family Medicine, the Direct Primary Care practice of Brian Pierce MD on Route 17 in Rockport Maine.
With Direct Primary Care you get great access to your own physician at a low, predictable cost and with several ways to save on high insurance deductibles and copays.
With fewer patients per physician, Direct Primary Care practices routinely offer same day access, minimal waits and longer appointments. When appropriate, many issues can be handled without an office visit. Phone calls are forwarded directly to your own physician after hours. House calls are available when needed.
The middlemen are removed from your primary care- we don't bill insurance companies, Medicare or Mainecare. Patients pay a low monthly membership fee ($25/month for 21 years old and younger, $40/month for ages 22-64 and $50 for age 65 and older) and a $20 scheduling fee for most office visits. Membership includes an annual physical and a flu shot at no additional cost.
For many patients, this significantly lowers out of pocket costs, especially for those with high deductible plans or exchange plans. Additionally, many insurers (except Medicare and Mainecare) may reimburse patients for a portion of preventive visits and visits after meeting deductibles.
Referrals, outside testing and prescriptions are generally covered by most insurances, Medicare and Mainecare but confirm this with your insurer. Many patients are pleasantly surprised to find we can usually find these at cash prices far below the "discounted" insurance price.
Medicare and Mainecare patients are welcome (fully open to Medicare patients on April 1st 2016) but remember that we don't bill them or insurers for your primary care.
