Wellness Visits FAQ

What are well visits?

Well visits are annual exams that encompass your whole-body health, particularly emphasizing your female reproductive system and overall female health.

At Higher Ground Women’s Health, well visits differ from what you might be used to. Our goal is to help you stop dreading your exam because caring for yourself shouldn’t feel like a chore. You’ll feel comfortable, safe, and understood here.

What do well visits include?

Well visits include a complete range of women’s health care needs, including a physical exam, Pap smear, and basic blood work.

You’ll discuss many topics with Dr. Lisa during your exam, including your sexual health, contraception, problems such as heavy periods, menopause symptoms, and infertility. Well visits include plenty of time to discuss your needs and goals — no 15-minute visits here!

Most patients opt for a direct care membership, which includes women’s well visits and many other benefits.

What is direct care?

Direct care is a fee-for-service model that bypasses the insurance company entirely. It allows the patient and provider to operate outside the restrictions of an insurance company’s policies. With direct care, physicians contract directly with the patient.

Higher Ground Women’s Health doesn’t accept insurance because they believe medical care should be accessible and straightforward. The direct care model offers predictable costs at a manageable price. Without the red tape of insurance, your providers can focus on what they do best — taking care of you.

Is a membership required for well visits?

Memberships are recommended, but not required, for well visits and services. We feel membership offers the best value for your money and supports a long-lasting relationship with your provider. You’re free to choose:
