New name. Same people. Better care.

Since our founding, we’ve been passionate about bringing together the best in natural and modern medicine and delivering it with a highly personal standard of care. We consider patient relationships fundamental to excellent health and well-being, which is why we make them the heart of our practice.

This new direction allows us to continue to provide the level of care you have come to know and love without compromise. We’re able to eliminate third parties and put YOU first – which is the way we believe healthcare should be. 

At Encompass Direct Care, we are committed to being your primary source for strengthening and restoring health, inside and out.

Membership with us is simple and affordable – it’s like having a doctor in the family.

Testimonial 3

|

I highly recommend Dr. Hudson. He knows what questions to ask as well as being a very good listener. He explained everything he was doing and why. I really liked the fact that Dr. Hudson took the time to address each of my needs thoroughly. I felt seen and heard by Dr. Hudson. He provides the type of care that all Dr.’s should strive for.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

About Membership

Is your membership health insurance?

We are not health insurance! And we think that’s best for everyone. Membership-based healthcare frees us up to focus on taking care of you or your employees – rather than jumping through hoops and dealing with red-tape (a.k.a. playing the insurance game). 

Do you accept insurance?

No, we do not accept health insurance as payment.

Is there an open enrollment period?

Nope! New patients may register at any time. We encourage you to register soon, as membership is currently limited to 500 patients or fewer.

Can I use my HSA card for the membership?

At this time, HSA cards can not be accepted as payment for membership. However, you can use your HSA card to pay for any labs, supplements or medications prescribed to you, or an x-ray, ultrasound, or EKG you receive through our office.

Will I have to pay a healthcare tax penalty?

Membership with Encompass Direct Care does not qualify as health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The good news? The federal tax penalty for not being enrolled in health insurance was eliminated in 2019.

Do you require a long-term contract?

Our membership is month-to-month. However, if membership is canceled within the first 6 months, a $225 early termination fee per person applies. 

What if I need care for a catastrophic event?

Thankfully, when it comes to paying for unexpected healthcare expenses, there are several sound options available. From High Deductible Health Plans to medical cost-sharing plans, let us help you explore your options. Contact us, for more information about which plan might work best for you or your employees.

I hardly ever see a doctor. Will a membership really benefit me?

Yes! Most people don’t bother seeing a doctor because it’s a hassle and it’s expensive. We have eliminated those barriers – you won’t have any copays or deductibles to worry about, and making an appointment with us is easy (and you won’t have to wait for weeks). So, it makes sense to see us even for minor issues and basic questions.

And, if we’re ever able to save you a trip to urgent care or the emergency room – you’ll be saving hundreds (if not, thousands) of dollars – enough to pay for months or years of membership.

Do I have to be a member to receive IV Therapy?

Nope! IV Therapy is a service we offer to everyone. But, our members receive a 10% discount.

Patient Services Guide

Patient Services Guide

Encompass Direct Care offers preventative, acute, and complimentary alternative medicine services, making us an integrative primary care provider. In this guide, we’ll do our best to list all that our members receive for their monthly membership. If you don’t see a service listed here that you want, please ask!

Typical Office Hours

With the exception of holidays and a rare clinic closure, we are available for members during these times for in-person, virtual, and telehealth visits.

  • Monday & Tuesday – 1pm – 6pm
  • Wednesday & Thursday – 9am – 5pm
  • Friday – 9am – 3pm

Preventative Care – Health & Wellness

Office visits for ongoing preventative care and for general health and wellness are included with your Membership as described in the Fee Schedule.  There are no itemized fees for office visits.

Limited Urgent Care

Encompass Direct Care is able to provide same or next-day care for limited urgent issues such as sprains, lacerations requiring stitches, infections, and more. If you are unsure if we are able to care for your current medical issue, please call and we will help assess your situation – we would love to save you an expensive visit to the emergency room!

After-Hours Availability

There is no guarantee of after-hours availability. However, your Physician will make reasonable efforts to see you as needed after hours if your Physician is available.  Should a NON-emergency, urgent injury or illness occur and after-hours and care is necessary prior to the next business day, our recommendation is to first call our after-hours line at 360.946.2400 and then to visit an after-hours urgent care clinic or the emergency room as a secondary option. Think of our after-hours number as your first line of defense.

Chronic Condition Management

A membership with Encompass Direct Care is perfect for those who are managing chronic conditions such as thyroid disorders, high blood pressure, asthma, and many others. We will take the time to understand your condition and help you manage it in a way that works best for you.

Medications & Prescriptions

Prescriptions can be sent to your pharmacy of choice, or we may have or be able to stock that prescribed medication and it can be filled right in our clinic. As a benefit to our members, we pass on our wholesale cost of medications, often saving our members up to 90%. An example of common medications we stock and their prices can be found in our Pricing Guide.

Supplements

We carry many of our most frequently prescribed professional-grade supplements. We pass along our wholesale prices to our members, just as with our medications. An additional advantage is that supplements prescribed by a physician are tax-free. Membership pricing on supplements is limited to the typical amount prescribed by your Physician for personal use.

Laboratory Testing

Encompass Direct Care offers basic on-site laboratory testing (pregnancy tests, basic urine tests, strep throat testing, and others) free of charge to members. Membership also includes necessary labs for annual physicals (CBC, CMP, and lipid panel). Much like prescriptions and supplements, we pass on our wholesale cost of each lab to our members (often saving up to 75 – 90%). An example of common labs and their prices are listed in our Pricing Guide.

Pathology Studies

The most common pathological studies are skin biopsies. We will order these in the most economical manner possible. Anticipated prices for these studies will be added to the Pricing Guide soon.

In-Office Procedures & Supplies

Many in-office procedures are offered at no additional cost unless otherwise designated in the Pricing Guide, which can be found on our website. In-office procedures we are generally comfortable performing are:

  • Wound care
  • Stitches
  • Toenail removal
  • Mole removal
  • Cyst removal
  • Injections & IVs
  • and more

We will have a limited selection of supplies available at wholesale cost (such as splints, braces, crutches, etc.), should you choose to purchase those from our clinic. Prices for these procedures can be found in our Pricing Guide. Supplies will be added soon.

Chiropractic Maintenance

Membership with Encompass Direct Care includes up to twelve chiropractic maintenance visits per year. Additional sessions beyond the twelve visits will require a chiropractic visit fee of $19 per visit. We may integrate additional therapies such as gua sha, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, or trigger point injections on a case-by-case basis, at no additional charge to our members.

Vitamin Injections & IV Therapy

Members receive a 10% discount on IV Therapy and vitamin injections. Pricing for vitamin injections and IVs are listed in the Pricing Guide.

Regenerative Injections

Members receive a 10% discount on regenerative injections (Prolotherapy and PRP). Pricing for regenerative injections can be found in the Pricing Guide.

Specialty Care Coordination

When a procedure, illness, or issue reaches beyond our scope of expertise, we will act as your referring primary care provider – coordinating the referral, communicating with the specialist, and helping to follow through with your care plan.

Hospital & Emergency Room Coordination

If you have a serious emergency requiring immediate medical attention, call 911, then call Encompass Direct Care (or have hospital personnel contact us) in order to let us know so we may help coordinate your care.

Should a member require hospitalization, or an emergency room visit, Encompass Direct Care will communicate with the hospital, send any necessary information or records (at the permission of that member) that might be required, and help to coordinate your care to the extent feasible.

What is Not Included

Membership with Encompass Direct Care does not include the following:

  • pediatric care for children under 13
  • obstetric and gynecologic services
  • maternity / prenatal care
  • vaccinations
  • specialist care
  • advanced imaging
  • emergency & hospital services
  • end of life care

 

We would like to offer some of these services in our office in the future, but due to our current small size, we are unable to offer these services at this time.  We will, however, be pleased to help you find the best source for these types of care as needed and will be working to help negotiate lower cash prices for care with certain specialists and/or advanced imaging services.
