WHY A MEMBERSHIP?
Why membership? Like a gym membership, you are investing in your health. Typically you would only visit your healthcare provider's office when you are sick. In this model, we are encouraging you to use your medical home for more than just "illness care". In addition to visits with your healthcare provider, you get discounted supplements, discounted labs and even some discounted medications. In addition to your regularly scheduled visits, Well Life ABQ is also here when you are sick. Through the use of texting, emailing, same/next day visits and online/telemedicine when medically appropriate, Well Life ABQ is here.
Well Life ABQ is a great option with or without insurance. Most providers have 900-1000+ patients on their "panel". They don't know who you are and they are so over booked with appointments, they only have a few minutes to see you. Through the use of membership, Well Life ABQ is able to have a smaller patient panel of 300-400. That means you aren't just a number, you are a person.

HOW MEMBERSHIPS WORK
Membership Payments are taken out on the 5th of the month.
Additional charges for medications, supplements, labs, etc are charged
at time of service.
Need to cancel membership - No Problem. Simply call 5 days before the next pay cycle and let us know. Please note re-enrollment is $250 and based on provider availability.
If there is an extra charge for a service, you will know exactly what it is before proceeding. There may be special labs and procedure that could require an additional fee. Our members receive a discounted price for these. Below are charts showing examples of what's included in your Well Life ABQ membership, plus examples of discounted lab and medication fees.
What We Don't Do:
We do not provide OB care but can do pre-conception counseling, free urine pregnancy testing and refer you to a capable OB/GYN.
We do not perform DOT physicals at this time.
We do not manage chronic pain. If this is a part of your health care, we will manage your health and coordinate pain-related care with a pain professional.
At this time we do not have on-site immunizations. This is because these are available at a low-cost at pharmacies and through the Department of Health. We do provide recommendations based on CDC guidelines.
We do not function as the attending provider when our patients are in the hospital. The hospital model is the best care available. They are not only familiar with typical hospital situations, but they are also well known by the hospital staff. Improved communication leads to better care. We will provide records and discuss your care by phone.
