Do I need insurance?

  • Wellscape Direct MD is not insurance.
  • It is still recommended that you have a health insurance plan to cover those situations for which insurance was intended: emergencies and hospitalizations; additionally, for your healthcare needs outside of what is offered at Wellscape, such as specialist care and higher-cost testing; and to meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act and Massachusetts Healthcare laws.
  • Please note that Wellscape will not bill your insurance for covered services, nor provide bills for submission to your insurance company.
  • Part of my job as your primary care physician is to make sure we utilize outside services wisely and only when necessary. Additionally, I will negotiate with outside services to provide the lowest costs possible as a cash-based fee; alternatively, you may opt to use your insurance for those outside services as the coverage allows.
