Medicare and Evolve: How Does It Work?
One question we hear at Evolve Medical is “Can I come to Evolve if I have Medicare?” and “How does it work?”
Fortunately, the answer could not be any more simple.
You can absolutely come to Evolve with Medicare and it works basically the same way as your current doctor’s office.
If you need labs, medicines, referrals, specialists—all those things just go through Medicare just like usual. The only difference is Evolve doesn’t bill Medicare for anything–ever.
Instead, you just pay the monthly membership rate after which there is essentially no charges from our office. The main exception is a State mandated $25 copay at each visit. For a complete list of our fees, please see below.
Why are doctors so rushed–and why won’t they call me back?
Have you ever wondered why your doctor won’t call you–or email, text, or do virtual visits? Why can’t your doctor spend the time you need? Why is your doctor so overbooked and rushed? The way Medicare pays doctors means that they spend about 6-10 minutes per patient–and need to see 30 people every day, one after another after another.
Medicare’s new rules mean doctors spend most of their time “charting” your visit and checking off boxes instead of focusing on you. That is why they often don’t look up from their computer.
What is the advantage of joining Evolve Medical for someone with Medicare?
Evolve Medical allows you to get everything you are currently getting PLUS what Medicare doesn’t pay.
