Country clubs, frequent flier programs, parent-teacher associations…the urge to join “the club” has always been deeply ingrained in the human psyche. And it makes sense: when we work together, we all benefit from the larger pool of resources. For far too long, however, your insurance policy has been the only way to access those collective benefits in the medical world – that is until ZüpMed came along. At ZüpMed, Membership means better access to the highest-quality care in addition to a number of perks that make your Primary or Urgent Care experience more comfortable, more affordable, and much more enjoyable.
Whether you’re already a card-carrying Member or you’re on the verge of becoming one (and what’s holding you back, really?), this one’s for you. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of ZüpMed Membership and how you can join “the club.”
Unlimited On-Demand Visits
Did you say unlimited? That’s right, and we stick by our word. ZüpMed Members get access to a wide range of unlimited on-demand visits for their every need without paying additional out-of-pocket fees or co-pays.*
You can join us for as many Primary or Urgent Care visits at our Laurelwood office as you need. And if you’re not feeling well enough to come in, we can schedule a telemedicine visit. That means your family can call us for help with little Tommy on Tuesday, Frank on Friday, and Susie on Saturday without paying any additional fees – although we really hope you never have a week that bad.
*While we can’t provide all ZupMed services to Members utterly free of charge, you can still enjoy old-fashioned House Calls or other ancillary services at heavily discounted prices.
Not everyone is a patient, patient, and we get that. At ZüpMed, we do everything we can to schedule same-day appointments for patients in need. After all, who wants to sit in a waiting room for hours on end when they’re already feeling under the weather? But every now and then, there’s a day when disaster just won’t wait, and the phones are ringing off the hook. You’ll be happy to know that as a ZüpMed Member, you’ll get access to priority scheduling even on the busiest days of the week, and we’ll bend over backward to ensure you get the care you need when you need it.
Stronger Doctor-Patient Relationship
Imagine this: you’re finding a new hairstylist or barber. It’s a nightmare we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemy. Searching for someone who gets your style goals, who has the skills to make you match the picture you’ve pinned on Pinterest, who understands how you like your small talk – getting all of this in one person can take years, and once you’ve found that person, you hope they never leave the salon.
Now, think about how much more important it is to ensure you have that relationship with the professionals handling your medications and treatment plan. The doctor-patient relationship is one of the most important parts of any health care system, and according to a recent PubMed Central article, “It is one of the most moving and meaningful experiences shared by human beings.” While this statement may sound melodramatic, its logic rings true. The holistic outlook that develops from consistent treatment from someone who knows you and understands your needs and preferences can transform your healthcare experience.
As a ZüpMed Member, you’ll build a long-term care relationship with each of our staff: Pharmacist, Physician, Nurse Practitioner, Concierge, Techs, and even a dedicated Member Services Director. Whether you’re seeking treatment for a chronic condition like asthma or diabetes, or you’re simply looking for a Primary Care physician to treat you for the years to come, your Membership ensures a more personalized medical approach, so we can send you home feeling better – mind, body, and soul.
Your Care, Your Way
When you’re accessing medical care through a third-party insurance provider, your treatment doesn’t always go the route that you and your doctor feel most comfortable with. Instead, this medical middleman can deny you coverage for needed treatment plans without ever meeting you or evaluating your condition in person. This often contradicts your trusted doctor’s advice, leaving you to choose between paying out of pocket for an “unnecessary” procedure or foregoing it entirely.
As a ZüpMed Member, you’ll never have to worry about an insurance middleman taking the reigns on your treatment plan. Instead, your medical decisions will be made between you and your physician, giving you back control of your treatment plan. And without an insurance company dictating the care you can and can’t receive, you can focus on what really matters: feeling better.
Affordable Monthly Fee & Discounted Pricing
You may be thinking that with so many benefits, Membership has to be exorbitantly expensive – but you’re in for a treat, my friend! Individual Memberships are age-adjusted and range from $45 to $125 per month, which is less than the typical monthly cell phone bill! Partners and additional members of the family are discounted, too.
And you can get all of these benefits without having to bother with confusing co-pays, deductibles, or surprise billing. If that weren’t enough, we also offer our Members discounted pricing on ancillary tests, acupuncture, IV hydration, supplements, and more. It’s good to be king.
Join the ZüpMed Family
For your family’s ongoing medical care, ZüpMed Membership is a smart way to go and joining is as easy as booking an appointment and speaking with one of our staff. If you’re ready to maximize your healthcare, develop a strong relationship with a genuine medical home, or even experience the luxury and convenience of an old-fashioned house call for the very first time (we don’t blame you), it’s time to call our team in East Memphis and join the ZüpMed family.
