What You Need to Know
Convenience and ease of access to the doctor and care team are afforded through
a smaller number of patients. Extended face-to-face time with your physician,
personalized focus on your health concerns and detailed planning for any chronic
conditions are a few additional reasons.
Enhanced Care doctors are highly qualified, board-certified specialists in internal medicine. Olathe Health Enhanced Care’s affiliation with the Olathe Health health system provides patient members direct access to the latest medical technology and a full range of medical specialists.
Olathe Health has established an affordable annual membership fee for
individuals 19 years and older who would like to become Enhanced Care members.
Patient membership fees, which are $850 per year, can be paid through monthly
installments upon request.
The annual membership fee for Enhanced Care members (which can be paid through monthly payments) is necessary to allow for a smaller patient base. Most primary care practices provide care for 2,000 to 3,000 patients. At Olathe Health Enhanced Care, the doctors will provide care for 500 to 600 patients, enabling them to spend more quality time with each patient during office visits, accommodate appointments the same or next business day, and respond to patient phone calls and/or emails within 24 hours/7 days a week – just to name a few
benefits of the enhanced services.
Yes. The Enhanced Care program does not take the place of general health insurance
coverage. Insurance companies will be billed directly, and the standard co-pay
will apply. The purpose of the program membership fee is to ensure easy access
to the doctor and practice.
No. For medical services such as these, your insurance will continue to be billed
directly and the standard co-pay will apply.
While annual membership refunds are not given, patients have the ability
to terminate the agreement at any time upon 30 days’ written notice. If you find
the Enhanced Care program is not for you, we will be happy to assist your search for
another primary care doctor.
Once alerted of your hospitalization, your Enhanced Care doctor will follow your
care closely and perform courtesy hospital visits Monday – Friday. Your doctor will
rely on an Olathe Health hospital-based physician, who specializes in managing
patient care in the hospital, to take charge of your primary management and ensure
you get 24-hour coordinated care.
Olathe Health Enhanced Care doctors practice from medical group locations that
are fully integrated with Olathe Health.
If your current doctor has elected to join Olathe Health’s Enhanced Care program
and you decide not to join, you will need to select a new primary care doctor who
matches your healthcare needs and philosophy. With more than 150 primary care providers on staff at dozens of locations, there’s an Olathe Health primary caregiver who is a perfect fit for you.
