Our Membership + Medical Care Model
The Heart of Wellness Membership + Medical care model combines clinician visits that are paid for via cash or insurance with a membership requirement that includes access to a range of education and coaching resources that are paid for via an annual membership fee.
This membership fee helps us stay in business without compromising on the quality of care we provide.
At Heart of Wellness, we strive to provide exceptional care that goes beyond what is conventionally available. Our team of experienced clinicians makes every effort to really understand you and your situation and to identify and treat the root causes of your illness or injury. Our goal is not just to treat your symptoms but also help you optimize your health and to empower you in your healing journey. We also understand the key role that lifestyle education and coaching plays in helping you to optimize your health and wellbeing.
Unfortunately this kind care is significantly undervalued within the conventional medical system. Your membership fee pays for educational and group coaching programs that extend the care we provide beyond the confines of conventional medical services.
The membership fee pays only for our education and coaching program and other non-medical benefits such as supplement discounts. The membership fee does not pay for any of the medical services that we provide. Please see our Pricing Page for a listing of our medical services and their costs.Get Started FAQ's

If you are not fully satisfied with the care you receive at Heart of Wellness under the Membership + Medical care model, just let us know within the first 90 days and we will cancel your membership and you will owe nothing.

The Heart of Wellness membership program has been developed in compliance with all state and federal requirements. Our membership program is consistent with Washington insurance laws governing health care service contractors and direct primary care practices. Heart of Wellness does not collect prepayment for health care services, nor do we directly bill patients for primary care services. Instead, the membership fees pay for non-covered health care services, primarily including educational and group coaching programs. All conventional covered health care services are billed on a fee-for-service basis to contracted insurers or to patients who pay cash or receive coverage from non-contracted insurers. Covered health care services are not paid for by our membership fee.
This membership model allows Heart of Wellness to provide care that goes far beyond what is offered under conventional care and paid for by insurance. However, our memberships do not in any way act as insurance and members are still responsible for meeting all requirements under their insurance contracts for services that are covered health care services.
The membership model allows Heart of Wellness to expand on its comprehensive integrated care model while complying with all applicable insurance requirements. Because our membership fee gives patients access to non-covered health care services, Heart of Wellness is not regulated as a health care service contractor nor as a direct primary care practice under state law.
