FAQ for Employers
Q: Is Evolve Medical Clinics an insurance plan?
A: No. We work directly with our patients to provide primary and preventive care services. We do not provide specialist, hospital or emergency care, but can refer patients to providers within their plan network.
Q: Is this similar to an on-site or near-site clinic?
A: Evolve Medical Clinics can be installed within your facility, depending on your employee base. For employers any size, Evolve acts as the equivalent of an near-site clinic.
Q: What is the advantage of Evolve over a Telemedicine benefit offering?
A: Telemedicine can handle up to 85% of routine urgent care. For those 15%, they are told to find an urgent care and start over–which is extremely frustrating. With Evolve, we can see your employee to follow up the virtual visit with any necessary testing–they will not need to start over. Further, telemedicine plans do not offer routine primary care via virtual visit–Evolve does.
Q: Does Evolve Medical pair with insurance plans?
A: Yes. We can work with any type of insurance plan. Most employers can expect to save 10-40% on their insurance premiums once Evolve is incorporated into their benefits plan.
Q: Do you work with insurance brokers?
A: We have the area’s top insurance architects/brokers available to help you build the a benefit offering that saves money and offers your employees a significant perk. We are also happy to work directly with your broker.
Q: How do you help save the employer and the employees financially?
A: Our model of care, Direct Primary Care (DPC) has been proven to dramatically lower healthcare utilization by decreasing ER visits, nearly eliminating urgent care visits, lowering referrals for Radiology and Specialists and decreased surgery and hospitalizations.
Q: Can you help our employees lower their prescription costs?
A: We act as advocates and actively search out not only the least expensive prescription but also the least expensive pharmacy. We even take that a step further and find coupons from websites like GoodRx.com which can dramatically lower medication costs.
Q: Are family members eligible?
A: Yes. Spouses, domestic partners and other family members are welcomed. Children ages 6-25 years of age receive a free membership with each parent enrolled.
Q: Employees often don’t want to change their Primary Care provider. Do they have to?
A: Absolutely not. They can use us for urgent care or routine prescriptions. Our experience is that after one or two visits within a clean, spa-like facility, no waiting, easy same-day appointments and our compassionate, attentive providers who communicate clearly with patients, they electively switch their primary care to us 75% of the time.
Q: Is Specialty care outside of Evolve Medical Clinics covered?
A: When patients’ health care needs extend beyond the scope of primary care or urgent care, our clinicians will work with outside specialists, pharmacies and hospitals to coordinate care. We work to provide referrals to only the top area specialists within your planned network.
Q: What about lab services?
A: Evolve Medical will draw your blood and then depending on your deductible, we can either provide lab services through either Labcorp or Quest at a discount up to 80%. Or, if you have met your deductible, we can send your labs to your insurance’s preferred provider.
Q: What about radiology services?
A: Evolve Medical has worked out discounts at a number of major radiology service providers. We can refer you through your insurance plan or, if you will not meet your deductible this year, we can offer services such as an MRI normally priced $1,000 for only $400.
Q: When does open enrollment begin?
A: We accept new patients 365 days per year.
