Why should my company select MDVIP’s corporate health program?

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.

How does my insurance work in an MDVIP-affiliated practice?

Most MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices accept insurance (your physician can tell you whether they accept your specific insurance plan). Your annual fee pays for preventive care medical services that insurance usually doesn’t cover (e.g., advanced diagnostic testing and screenings). Your MDVIP-affiliated physician will continue to bill your insurance and charge copays, co-insurances and deductibles as he or she currently does for other medical services like sick visits.

What is included in an MDVIP membership?

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.

My insurance already provides for an annual physical, so why do I need the MDVIP Wellness Program?

The MDVIP Wellness Program includes lab tests, screenings and diagnostics that go beyond what is typically included in a basic physical exam. These tests, for example, have been shown to identify 40 percent more people at risk for heart attack or stroke compared to standard cholesterol tests. The detailed results of this additional testing, in combination with one-on-one counseling with your doctor, will be used to develop your customized wellness plan.

Why do doctors affiliate with MDVIP?

Doctors affiliate with MDVIP because they want to practice medicine the way they were trained. They want to have time with their patients, they want to focus more on preventing disease rather than just treating symptoms, and they want have more innovative tools available to them. These doctors want to make a real impact on their patients’ health, but the current healthcare system has gotten in their way, creating long waits, red tape and too little time for meaningful interaction.
