We are a Direct Primary Care practice in Springfield, Missouri that utilizes a membership model (flat monthly fee) for the primary form of payment. Members can utilize our services as often as needed, including tele-medicine (phone calls, Skype and texts). Being a member, means that you will never be charged a co-pay to see your healthcare provider.
Direct Primary Care is a type of primary care billing and payment arrangement or a direct financial relationship between patients and their healthcare provider (membership), without sending claims to insurance companies. Direct Primary Care members, will quickly see that this can save them money, creating an affordable and accessible opportunity to receive quality healthcare, even if you do not have insurance.
No. Insurance, in appropriate situations, is a very wise thing to have. 417 Health & Wellness recommends getting at least a catastrophic or major medical plan to cover you in case an unpredictable health disaster strikes. If you think about it, this is the true use for insurance. You have homeowner’s insurance, so you’re covered if there is a flood or fire. You have car insurance, so you have nothing to worry about (car wise) if you’re in an accident. We currently accept Medishare and BlueCross BlueShield insurance for primary care services. Direct Primary Care services are still available without utilizing insurance if needed. 417 Health & Wellness does not utilize insurance for IV infusions (vitamin injections), weight loss plans, or hormone replacement therapy, because these services are not typically covered under most insurance plans.
At 417 Health & Wellness in Springfield, we pride ourselves on providing the best, comprehensive care possible. This means spending more time with each patient in an effort to get to the source of any health issues. Additionally, we focus on Preventative Medicine to keep our patients healthy. However, should it be determined that a patient needs to see a specialist, we have developed a network of qualified professionals, many of which provide care to 417 Health & Wellness patients at a reduced rate for their services. Of course, in the event of an emergency situation, we always recommend that you call 911 or go to the nearest emergency medical facility.
As a business owner, we know you want to be able to offer your employees the benefits of health care coverage. However, many times, this is unaffordable for small business owners. 417 Health & Wellness Direct Primary Care memberships are an affordable alternative to traditional health insurance plans, and do not cost the employer anything. That's right, simply because they are a part of your business, we will offer each employee a discounted membership rate, and they will pay us directly. Some employers find the cost of employee memberships to be so affordable, that they offer to pay for them. Let 417 Health & Wellness set up a time to come to your office and present Direct Primary Care membership in Missouri to you and your employees.
Currently we do not provide vaccines for children but have information about where to get the vaccinations that they need. We utilize the health department for most vaccines which is a more affordable option.
I highly recommend Justin at 417 Health & Wellness. He has helped improve my health and has drastically reduced the symptoms in my autoimmune disorder. He truly cares about his patients, and has an insatiable appetite to research and learn new approaches to bring his clients true health. His membership option is affordable for good primary care, and he is very responsive and accessible to his patients. Can't say enough good things about him!
Both my wife and I rely on Justin and the others at Derma Health to keep us in top health. Justin has a great hands on approach to medicine and is always doing research and investigation to keep abreast of any and all medical recommendations which may be of help to us. Frankly, I have never anyone who is more capable or willing to work with us to achieve our health goals. He's one of the best!
Very affordable and excellent care. Justin Joiner is the best to go to for health care. Great doctor and treats you with the utmost care. Great for preventative and alternative health care needs. He takes pride in his work and definitely has compassion for his work he does. I highly recommend Justin at 417 Health and Wellness. He takes time to listen to his patient's concerns and helps them figure out the best treatment option for them.
I used to work with Justin so I know he’s really a good nurse. I’ve seen it first hand how he cares for his patients in the ER. So when I felt something was off I knew I could trust him to figure out what’s going on with me. He really listens, and he makes it easy to understand with all the medical terminology.
Justin helped me when I was in intense pain; without once complaining that I was in past their regular hours: he is knowledgeable and kind and very compassionate! I will always go to him for acupuncture and I have already referred several people! He has a servants heart!
Absolutely recommend this place. Justin is great; he definitely knows his stuff and is very knowledgeable about things when I ask and willing to explain things as needed. Working on a weightloss plan with him right now. B12 shots weekly. Justin is always so pleasant & kind when going in. I have found my permanent health & wellness place. I definitely recommend this place to any & everyone. You definitely won't be disappointed.
