PrimeHealth was established to provide you with exceptional, personalized medical care. We are considered a concierge medical practice. We still accept your health insurance and provide traditional medical care as we did for over a decade at Apple Valley Family Medicine. Now, as PrimeHealth Asheville, we want to offer services beyond your regular health insurance. We also want to spend more time listening to your concerns and designing a plan customized to help you without some of the constraints placed on most medical offices. The annual fee allows us to provide the higher level of service. We believe you will be satisfied with the care you are given.
A:Yes, we accept most health insurance plans as well as Medicare. Please refer to the membership page or contact us to ask if we participate with your specific plan. We will submit bills to your insurance and charge co-pays and deductibles as required by the insurance company for other medical services.
A:A typical family physician cares for several thousand patients. PrimeHealth physicians will be limited to a number patients per doctor. Once this limit is reached, you can ask to be placed on our waiting list.
A:We are glad to care for your family, starting at age 15. One dependent family member (age 15 to 25) per adult PrimeHealth member will be eligible for free practice membership. The annual fee for each additional family member is $750 per year.
A:No, we are an independent medical practice. We accept health insurance and Medicare and you can go to the hospital of your choice. We can also refer you to any specialist or tertiary care center as needed.
A:The annual fee for PrimeHealth is $2,100.00 per person. For more details please visit our membership page.
