Our Patient Program
Annual Membership Model
As of June 1, 2017, Good Medicine has officially transitioned the billing model to a “Fee for Service” structure, also known as cash pay. This means we have ceased all agreements with any and all Insurance Providers and Medicare as well as submission of any claims to insurance. The annual membership will continue unchanged. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
Why the Change?
This has been a monumental transformation for our practice; a decision which is critical to maintain our vision of providing the highest standard of patient-centered care possible. The Good Medicine membership model was created to deliver care without compromise, however, the continued pressure from the insurance industry is requiring us to spend more and more time filing requirements, leaving us with less time to focus on our patients. Industry experts are predicting this pressure will not only continue but will get progressively more complicated in years to come. Due to these changes, we can no longer responsibly partner with insurance companies and still remain true to the standard of care that is Good Medicine.
Each visit you will receive a super bill that includes standard billing details, should you choose to submit your claims to insurance. You may have the option of submitting your super bill to receive reimbursement, from your insurance provider, based on your out-of-network benefits in your plan. For labs and compounded prescriptions, it is recommended to call your Insurance Company for Prior Authorization. Be sure to know the diagnostic code before calling your insurance company for Prior Authorization.
Ask your insurance company about their Non-Network-Claim Form and Non-Network-Claim filing addresses. In addition, you will still be able to use HSA (Health Savings Accounts) and FSA (Flexible Spending Accounts) to cover medical costs. Our fee for services will now be $70.00 per 15 minutes, well below the industry standard. Routine follow up office visits will now be $140.00 and 30 minutes long. Acute visits (addressing one acute problem only, i.e: sore throat, cough, fever, etc.) will be $70.00 and 15 minutes long.
Good Medicine is no longer a Medicare provider. Please read this form to better understand how patients accept the full responsibility for payment, at time of service, for all services provided by Good Medicine.
Primary Care Coverage
Dr. Morris is a solo medical practitioner and specializes more in the role of a functional medical consultant. There will be times that having an additional primary care doctor will be advantageous to address the acute issues that may arise. In addition, Dr. Morris will no longer be prescribing Opiates or Stimulants on a chronic basis. These prescriptions will be used only for a short term issues (less than 30 days); therefore, if you are intending long term use of these items, you will need to arrange for another provider.
Most Importantly, it is our honor and pleasure to have a care partnership with you. We, as a team, appreciate your loyalty. We understand that just as we have made critical decisions based on our priorities, you will be making the same important decisions for yourself. If you choose to have another physician oversee your care, as a courtesy via your previous membership, we will continue to extend your membership discount for supplements. Online ordering is available. Remember to create an account to keep record of your purchase history. If you need your member discount code for online supplement orders or have any further questions, please call our Clinical Coordinator at our office 513-273-9944 ext 1.

Interested in our Care Planner
The Good Medicine Functional Medicine Care Planner is designed to help create the Patient-Provider Partnership. This Fx Planner organizes, documents, tracks and budgets the care plan pieces patients are layering into their functional medicine plan. Layering the right piece, at the right time, to work in combination with all the previous pieces, is the right formula for healing.
Bring this planner to your appointments with Dr. Morris to report what you are doing, how it is going, and to discuss what are the next steps to evolve your care plan.
