During the second appointment, your provider will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that is tailored exclusively for you, which may include dietary changes and prescribed medications if determined to be medically appropriate.

Treatment

After you start your treatment plan, you will have regular video check-ins with your provider to ensure the plan is working to help you effectively manage your symptoms, and that your lifestyle continues to improve. Speak to a provider today to get started!

General

What if I need in-person testing or examinations?

If any in-person care is needed, such as bloodwork, vaccinations, or other testing, our providers are able to send the appropriate request to a nearby lab. Results will be integrated with our HIPAA-compliant mobile app so that patients have access to all of their medical records in one secure place.

Where do you provide services?

To see if you are located within our service area, begin booking an appointment to enter your zip code.

Note: As a patient, you must be physically present within the state your provider is actively licensed to practice medicine in at the time of service.

How long are the appointments?

The first intake appointment is 30 minutes. Follow-up appointments are 20 minutes each.

Billing

How do I know how much my specific appointment will cost?

For those with insurance, your final out-of-pocket costs are determined by your insurance. Once we submit the claim, insurance companies will pay for their portiona portion of the appointment and pass on any remaining costs to you as noted in your policy. Once we know what this cost is, we will update you with an invoice within the app. If you are uninsured, you will be able to receive a cash-pay estimate in our mobile application.

When do I get charged for my appointment?

For those with insurance, it typically takes 1-3 weeks for the insurance claim to be processed. Once processed, we’ll send you an invoice within the app with any remaining costs. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.

For those without insurance (or with out of network insurance), we will send you the invoice 1-2 days after your appointment is completed. You can then opt to pay through the app, or we will automatically charge the payment card on file after 48 hours of sending you the invoice.

Insurance

What insurance do you accept?

We accept over 1,500+ insurance plans. We cover most of the major PPO insurance companies (payors) across the United States. The best way to confirm coverage of your insurance plan is to begin booking an appointment on our website or via our mobile app. During the booking process, you’ll be prompted to enter your insurance information for a real-time verification of your insurance plan.

We do not accept Medicaid or Medi-Cal at this time.

What if I am having issues verifying my insurance plan coverage?

The best way to confirm your insurance plan coverage is to call the Member Services phone number on the back of your insurance card. If needed, you can reference our Tax ID#: 474883537 and our NPI: 1134596091. Once you are able to confirm your coverage and your primary care copay costs, you can use the in-app chat to message our team with the information. We’ll then follow up with confirmation.

What is the total cost of diagnosis and treatment?

Your per-appointment costs are set by your insurance plan. If the costs seem high, you may be on a high deductible health plan (HDHP). This means that you have an annual out-of-pocket amount that you must pay on healthcare in a given year before your insurance plan will cover more of your per-appointment costs. 

If you are on an HDHP and have confirmed your insurance information in our mobile app, your remaining deductible for the year will be displayed on the “Book Appointment” page. Note that this amount may be outdated if you have had recent insurance claims processed.

Don't take our word for it.

I like the flexibility of virtual appointments.

Brody

The practitioners are very knowledgeable, trustworthy, understanding, kind & they listen! I have been using Circle Medical for almost a year & I highly recommend it! :-)

Rosemary

Circle Medical was able to get me the help and care I needed when I needed it most. Local doctors and health services were too booked to be able to help me soon enough. Circle got me connected with health professionals quickly and with ease. Quite simply, Circle saved my life.

Reese

I found an amazing provider who has helped me more in the last few months than a team of specialists over the course of nearly a decade of care.

Valentin

I’m so happy that medical and mental health care accessibility has finally caught up to our “new normal” schedules and lifestyles. I’ve had an incredibly helpful provider for the past 3 months and every appointment has been exactly to-the-minute on time, professional, and convenient. I truly feel the care and helpfulness she has for me during our appointments, and I’m sure many others as well. Thank you Circle Medical for providing healthcare that doesn’t require me taking hours off of work to drive to and sit in a waiting room for a simple routine follow up/check in appointment every month. 10/10 quality care and reliability. I can’t thank you enough.

Finding a good and reliable remote healthcare provider to diagnose and treat ADHD is extremely difficult. Circle Medical has made this process easy for me and I am thankful I chose Circle Medical.

Zander

I get to decide my provider. Tons of appointments that are days away instead of weeks. Well-designed app. Medical/appointment notes are all in one location instead of spread around or buried in menus. Everything got done without any bumps or pushback or bs. I've never *ever* had such a painless experience.

This is a marvelous service, it has significantly helped me with my medical needs and my new PCP is amazing!

It is a very well organized system, efficient and easy. My provider has specific ADHD training and you let us know how your ADHD program rolls (up front). No one likes surprises.

Tips for managing heartburn and acid reflux:

If you experience heartburn or acid reflux, following these tips may help to manage your symptoms:

Avoid trigger foods and drinks — Certain foods and drinks can exacerbate the symptoms of GERD. These may include spicy foods, fatty foods, caffeine, alcohol and any foods with high acidity. Take note of your trigger foods and make sure to avoid them whenever possible.

Eat smaller meals and chew thoroughly — Large meals can sometimes cause acid reflux or heartburn symptoms. Eating smaller meals and chewing your food thoroughly will help your digestion and reduce the risk of symptoms.

Avoid meals before bed — Lying down right after eating makes it easier for stomach acid to flow back through the esophagus. Giving your body ample time to digest will help reduce your symptoms at night.

Raise the head of your bed — Try to elevate the head of your bed by six to nine inches to help reduce acid reflux and heartburn symptoms. Gravity can help to keep the acid down.

Maintain a healthy weight — Excess weight can put pressure on your abdomen and increase the likelihood of acid reflux.

Quit smoking — Smoking can have a myriad of negative health effects, including the weakening of your lower esophageal sphincter.

Manage stress — Stress can sometimes worsen the symptoms of acid reflux. Try relaxing activities to manage stress. You can double down by making some calming tea with ingredients like ginger or peppermint that help to soothe the stomach.

Avoid tight clothing — Tight-fitting clothing can put pressure on your abdomen and increase the risk of acid reflux.

Sleep on your left side — Sleeping on your left can sometimes help reduce acid reflux symptoms. Try sleeping on your left side if you usually sleep a different way.
