OUR MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

[/heading][accordion opened=”false” style=””][accordion_item title=”Is this the time to embark on a new model of primary care delivery given the recent downturn in the economy?”]

We can’t think of a better time to try to help provide more affordable, predictable care for patients and employers. We look forward to working with individuals and employers to decrease the cost of health care in the Bighorn Basin.

[/accordion_item][/accordion][accordion opened=”false” style=””][accordion_item title=”Do I still need to carry medical insurance?”]

Yes. 307Health recommends that all its members carry health insurance to cover their diagnostic, specialty, surgical and emergency healthcare needs, and to meet the federal legal requirements of all American citizens.

[/accordion_item][/accordion][accordion opened=”false” style=””][accordion_item title=”How will I transfer my records?”]

When you enroll as a 307Health member, you will complete a “records request” form for your former care provider. Your former care provider will then transfer your records to us.

[/accordion_item][/accordion][accordion opened=”false” style=””][accordion_item title=”How does 307Health ensure record storage, security and privacy?”]

All patient records will be electronically stored in our  electronic medical record database hosted through AtlasMD in Wichita, Kansas.

[/accordion_item][/accordion][accordion opened=”false” style=””][accordion_item title=”Where will I get my diagnostic services?”]

307Health physicians will continue to refer their patients to local providers and medical support services as we have always done.

[/accordion_item][/accordion][accordion opened=”false” style=””][accordion_item title=”Can my 307Health doctor care for me if I am admitted to the Powell hospital?”]

307Health physicians will be involved in the care of their patients admitted to Powell hospital.

[/accordion_item][/accordion][accordion opened=”false” style=””][accordion_item title=”Can I use my HSA funds for membership?”]

The use of HSA funds to pay for a DPC membership is not recommended at this time, but bi-partisan legislation is being developed to address this issue.

[/accordion_item][/accordion][accordion opened=”false” style=””][accordion_item title=”Can I use my insurance for membership?”]

Currently, there are no insurers who reimburse their customers for DPC member fees, including Medicare and Medicaid in Wyoming.

[/accordion_item][/accordion][accordion opened=”false” style=””][accordion_item title=”Can my member fee be applied to my insurance deductible?”]

No. In DPC, primary care costs are like ongoing house or automobile maintenance costs that are not covered by your catastrophic home and auto insurance. Evidence shows that regular health maintenance – like home and auto maintenance – will decrease the need to use your health insurance and its corresponding deductible.

[/accordion_item][/accordion][accordion opened=”false” style=””][accordion_item title=”Is my membership a monthly or annual fee?”]

All member fees are automatically charged at the end of the service month. There is no required length of service contract. Membership can be discontinued at any time by completing a simple form.

[/accordion_item][/accordion][accordion opened=”false” style=””][accordion_item title=”Can I resume membership after withdrawing?”]

Because 307Health has a limited number of member openings, we require a 1-year wait for withdrawing members to reactivate their service membership as openings are available.

[/accordion_item][/accordion][accordion opened=”false” style=””][accordion_item title=”What if the practice is not accepting new patients?”]

When a physician’s practice is full, applying members will be given the choice to select a partner physician with openings, to be wait-listed for an opening to their requested physician’s practice.
