The MEMPHIS Plan
As a MEMPHIS Plan provider, you will have patients assigned to you, similar to an insurance panel. These patients will come to your office to be seen, within your normal patient schedule. You can choose how many patients you wish to have assigned to you. Currently, there are doctors volunteering to care for a range of 10-100 MEMPHIS Plan patients.
On average, a MEMPHIS Plan patient sees their doctor 2-3 times/year. Their lab work and diagnostic testing is all covered by the MEMPHIS Plan, ordered directly from your office. Specialty referrals are handled by our MEMPHIS Plan office at your request.
