Following your physical exam, your doctor may recommend some follow-up tests, draw your blood and send you on your way with the suggestion that you lose a few pounds or continue taking your vitamins. This is all that time allows.
With more time devoted to less patients, MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices can go beyond basic.
Each year your doctor will take you through the MDVIP Wellness Program, which is paid for by your membership fee.
You will receive comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests that have been shown to help detect issues earlier but are not typically covered by commercial insurance or Medicare. The results help give a clearer view of your overall health.
You and your doctor will discuss your health test results in detail. You’ll know your numbers, understand what those numbers mean and how they can be improved. Together, you’ll develop an individualized action plan that will include next steps, how progress will be measured and a time frame for follow up.
Whether you’re managing a chronic illness, have a family history of disease or consider yourself the picture of health, there’s always room for improvement. This is what the MDVIP Wellness Program is all about — identifying and addressing your unique needs so you can focus on living your best.
Here are examples of what could be included in your personalized wellness plan:
Even if you’re in the best shape of your life, MDVIP’s Wellness Program can help you maintain good health and avoid some of the problems that come with aging through early detection. In short, the MDVIP Wellness Program is a comprehensive tool to help you and your doctor map out a health plan specific to you. It reflects your test results AND your health goals. Published studies have shown that the MDVIP personalized preventive care approach leads to better health outcomes and can help keep you out of the ER and the hospital.
