Frequently Asked Questions
MDVIP is a top-rated executive health program, according to Worth magazine. Of those recognized, MDVIP is the only program to have a nationwide network of affiliated physicians. Our affiliated physicians also provide follow-up care and wellness planning, which can result in meaningful health outcomes. In addition, MDVIP’s program is different because members of MDVIP-affiliated practices enjoy conveniences not found in most primary care practices such as 24/7 doctor availability by phone and same- or next-day appointments that start on time. Physicians also provide follow-up care and wellness planning, which can result in meaningful health outcomes.
As members of MDVIP-affiliated practices, your executives will take part in the annual MDVIP Wellness Program, which includes comprehensive, advanced screenings and diagnostic tests not typically covered by commercial insurance. Our Wellness Program, comparable to an executive physical, addresses key areas such as heart health, diabetes, respiratory health, bone health, nutrition, fitness, emotional well-being, hearing, vision, weight management, sleep and management of chronic illness. Based on their results, their doctor will develop a plan to help them improve or manage their numbers.
Beyond this executive-style physical program, they’ll also receive year-round care from a physician who knows them if they so desire. In addition, they’ll enjoy conveniences such as:
- The ability to reach their physician 24/7
- Same-day or next-day, on-time appointments with the doctor
- Unhurried office visits
If employees need second opinions or highly specialized treatment, MDVIP also assists its affiliated physicians in facilitating referrals to leading institutions through a national network of renowned Medical Centers of Excellence. If they have an urgent need while they are traveling, their physician can help arrange them care with a local hospital, pharmacy or doctor, which may include an MDVIP-affiliated physician.
We currently have nearly 900 affiliated physicians practicing in 43 states and Washington DC.
No. They can choose to keep their current doctor and still take advantage of having an MDVIP-affiliated physician perform their annual wellness services.
Choosing a doctor is based on personal preference (i.e., training or proximity to your home or workplace).
Your employees can find information about all the doctors in our national network, including their professional credentials, education and training. We encourage your employees to contact the practice and schedule a face-to-face appointment to meet the doctor and discuss their personal health goals and objectives to decide if that MDVIP-affiliated physician is the right one for them.
Yes. If your company doesn’t pay the full cost of a membership, your employees can use their pre-tax corporate plans to pay for the fee. After they have received their annual wellness services, the yearly fee may generally be reimbursed by flexible spending accounts (FSAs), medical savings accounts (MSAs), health reimbursement accounts (HRAs), and health savings accounts (HSAs). Please note that the fee cannot be paid using an FSA debit or credit card.
No. The MDVIP program is a complement to existing health insurance.
Employees will still need health insurance to cover all other medical services unrelated to the wellness program, including sick visits, specialty consults, diagnostic tests, outpatient procedures and hospital stays. Co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance of their existing benefit package would apply to all healthcare services provided outside of the annual MDVIP Wellness Program.
Our doctors also perform additional services beyond the MDVIP Wellness Program, which may be covered by insurance.
Most commercial health insurance plans are compatible with membership in an MDVIP-affiliated practice. Please direct questions about insurance coverage to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The annual fee for individual memberships in MDVIP-affiliated practices is generally between $1,650 and $2,200, based on location. You can discuss specific pricing with MDVIP's executive health team at 844-393-6070.
MDVIP-affiliated internal or family practice physicians will usually treat your children (between the ages of 16 to 25) for routine office visits or sick care without any additional membership fee. This may vary, so please check with your MDVIP-affiliated doctor. Also note that standard fees, insurance co-pays, coinsurance or deductibles may apply.
No, MDVIP-affiliated physicians limit their practice to MDVIP members only so they can focus their time and attention on them exclusively.
In order to help your employees easily connect with their doctor and make healthy choices every day, MDVIP has designed two tools to support health and wellness. Through MDVIP Connect website and app, employees will be able to communicate securely with their doctor and staff from their desktop and mobile devices, manage payment profile and schedule payments (if applicable), get support from MDVIP, and view the results of their MDVIP wellness services.
On the Connect website, they’ll be able to:
- Take an interactive Health Assessment that provides immediate insights into their current health status;
- View or download their personal health record;
- Find meal plans and recipes from EatingWell®;
- Access a library of exercise animations and workout programs.
Through the Connect app, they’ll be able to:
- Import and view health data from their doctor’s practice and other specialists, if connectivity is available;
- Manage health information for their family (with their consent);
- View appointment information and recent lab results;
- Update their contact information.
The process of setting up an MDVIP Executive Health Program for your company is easy. After you’ve connected with James Wood, head of our corporate wellness program, you’ll execute a non-disclosure agreement and one-year corporate agreement.
From there, just a submit list of eligible employees. We’ll help you distribute welcome communications that explain the program to the eligible employees. They’ll select their preferred physician, and their new physician will contact them to set up appointments.
MDVIP will provide ongoing customer service for employees, and we’ll provide ongoing support for you and your company as well as Wellness Program participation reporting.
