FAQ – Kudo Care Membership

What does the medical membership fee cover?

The fee covers excellent medical care through unrestricted office visits, annual wellness exams, well-child exams, sports physicals, school physicals, basic office procedures, treatment of acute illness or minor injuries and 24/7/365 access to your doctor, all with minimal wait times in the office. Our patients will also have access to discounted labs, major office procedures, vaccine, and radiology.

Is my membership fee tax deductible?

Unfortunately, it is not. Your membership fee is not yet defined as a “medical expense” in most states and therefore is not tax deductible. The American Academy of Private Physicians, however, is lobbying hard to win rightful deductibility for these expenses. We advise that you discuss this further with your tax preparer or accountant. Anything we order such as labs, radiology, and medications can be applied to HSA, HRA, FSA, or out of network deductible

What are the cost of becoming a patient?

There is a one-lifetime signup fee of $50. An annual membership fee, paid monthly or paid in full, is all that is required. This will cover costs of providing care to you and your family throughout the year. For every visit, you pay only $5 co-pay.

Does KUDO CARE see patients of all ages?

KUDO Care currently provides care for patients of all ages.

How do I join if the practice is full?

In order to provide the highest possible level of personalized, quality care to patients who choose our practice, we must limit membership. As a result, once our practice membership is full, a waiting list will be established. As openings become available, you will be contacted by a member of our team regarding membership, please email us at info@kudocarecenter.com or give us a call 972-639-5836 and ASK FOR MEMBERSHIP

What if I want to cancel my membership?

We expect to have an open, honest, respectful relationship with you. If you have voiced a complaint that we cannot satisfy together, we will gladly allow you to terminate your membership. If your membership is cancelled, terms of cancellation will be applied and are outlined in the Patient Agreement, normally require 30 days notice in advance. The details can be discussed with Dr. Nguyen or his staff at any time.

What is Direct Primary Care?

Direct Primary Care is a nation-wide movement of Primary Care doctors who have disembarked from the insurance companies and their assembly-line model of medicine in favor of re-establishing the patient-doctor relationship. It is a form of concierge medicine that is designed to be affordable for the masses. We operate on a monthly membership fee, much like a gym, which allows patients to receive unlimited office visits and what we call technology visits (email, cell phone/text messages, Skype, FaceTime, etc.). Because DPC practices do not participate in any insurance or plans, the providers are able to avoid the ever-increasing and costly documentation demands and administrative intrusions that come with accepting insurance. DPC practices also avoid the onerous patient data collection responsibilities, which many plans impose. These require staff, time, and money, often amounting to substantial intrusions on patient privacy. Because DPC physicians avoid these obligations to insurance companies, they are free to spend that time listening to and treating patients. And because DPC physicians eliminate the significant overhead costs of participating in insurance, they can pass the savings on to you, the patient – and give compassionate, attentive and timely care at an affordable cost

Why is KUDO CARE MEMBERSHIP a better option?

Many patients today and in the near future will end up having high deductible plans, where the insurance won’t cover the first $2,000-$5,000 that they spend anyway, but with our membership model, they can maximize the amount of healthcare they get and minimize their cost. In the new model of care, we work with our patients directly through a monthly membership so they get unlimited office visits and what we call technology visits. They also don’t have co-pays for anything in our office. Any procedures we can do in our office like: EKG, PFT’s, biopsies, cryosurgery, joint injections, osteopathic manual treatments (OMT), etc., are included free of charge.In addition, we can also get labs and radiology at wholesale pricing as well, which will be a substantial savings for the patient. So in the long run, we actually end up saving our patients more than the membership costs.

Will I still benefit from KUDO CARE MEMBERSHIP, even if I do not require frequent medical attention?

We love that question and we hear it often! Everyone benefits from medical care personalized directly for them. Our practice is committed to preventative health maintenance, which is a long-term investment in you! Physicals, i.e., preventative health visits, are not just routine cares, they are opportunities for early disease detection, much like a state inspection for your car.Furthermore, our mission is to devote in helping you growth not just physically Every visit, regardless of the reason, will give us the opportunity to get to know you better and to build a long-standing relationship over time. As a result, individual care plans can be developed that are tailored to the individual needs of each patient. Traditional medical practices, which are insurance-driven, find it difficult to forge this relationship effectively like we are fortunate to do.
