Financial FAQs

Understanding the financial concerns of healthcare, Delight Medical offers several options to make our services more affordable. Our First Goal is to make your money’s worth by delivering Top Shelf Quality that any others can offer. Further, upfront payment discounts, special pricing for services not typically covered by insurance, and flexible payment methods like FSA accounts, Zelle and Venmo. Our goal is to ensure that financial constraints do not prevent anyone from receiving the quality care they deserve.

Delight Medical & Wellness Center welcomes and directly bills any PPO health care insurance with out-of-network benefits for your medical services. Our experienced staff will handle the billing process to ensure you can utilize your out-of-network benefits efficiently. If you have insurance types outside of PPO or have further questions about your coverage, please reach out to us for assistance and to learn about our discount options for various plans. Although we are not direct providers for Medicare, Medi-Cal, HMO, EPO, Kaiser, or VA insurances, we offer special discounts for patients with these coverages.

The concept of out-of-network coverage in a PPO health insurance plan, especially in the context of Delight Medical & Wellness Center, revolves around differences in coverage levels and the associated costs for patients.

In-Network Benefits: Healthcare providers designated as "in-network" have entered into agreements with insurance companies. These agreements involve the providers accepting a lower payment rate from the insurer, in return for potentially receiving a higher volume of patients directed to them by the insurance company. While this arrangement benefits the insurance company by reducing their costs, it often results in these in-network providers having to see a significantly larger number of patients to maintain their income, which can impact the quality of care they're able to provide.

At Delight Medical & Wellness Center, we prioritize the quality of care over patient volume. Our commitment to maintaining high standards of personalized attention means we choose not to engage in these high-volume, low-reimbursement agreements, ensuring our patients receive the focused and comprehensive care they deserve.

Out-of-Network Benefits: Delight Medical & Wellness Center gladly accepts PPO health insurance plans that include out-of-network benefits. This means you can access our high-quality care even if we are not listed as an in-network provider by your insurance. Despite some insurers possibly suggesting that out-of-network services incur higher costs for patients, this is not the case with Delight Medical. We often accept the insurance payment as complete (meaning we don't pursue additional co-pays or co-insurances from our patients) once your deductible is met. For patients who haven't met their annual deductible, we offer various bundles and discount options to make our services accessible while you work towards meeting your deductible criteria.

Our approach ensures that financial considerations do not hinder your access to the quality care you need and deserve.

Our fees are structured to reflect the personalized and comprehensive nature of our care. For example, the cost for a weight management consultation is $299, and other medical consultations are $250. These fees cover the initial evaluation, including establishment into our medical software, body fat analysis using BIA technology, vitals, a 15-minute meeting with our doctor, and blood draw for lab processing. The second visit for plan discussion and adjustments is also included.
