What is Concierge Medicine?

Concierge Medicine is a membership-based medical practice that provides more personalized and comprehensive care with quick access to doctors and shorter wait times for a set fee.

A close relationship with a trusted primary care physician (PCP) can make a huge difference, whether you or a loved one want to maintain optimal health or manage a complex or chronic condition. That’s why UC San Diego Health created this special medical service where we actively partner with you on your health journey with a unique and whole-person approach.

Concierge Medicine and Insurance

This exceptional primary care program is an add-on to your existing health insurance plan, which typically covers standard features like physical examinations, office visits, procedures and hospitalization.

You pay a flat annual membership fee that gives you extra benefits, including individualized attention, longer consults, fewer hassles, round-the-clock physician availability, comprehensive health assessments and ongoing care management.

Concierge Medicine services are not available with HMO plans. Please call us at 858-657-5000 to find out which insurance plans are accepted by us.

Attention to Your Needs

Our Concierge Medicine program has limited enrollment, so your PCP has more time to focus on your overall wellness and preventive care. You and your doctor work together on your specific needs while immediately addressing any health issues as soon as they arise.

Most importantly, you can develop a meaningful, lifelong relationship with your primary care doctor and top-tier care team — whether you live around the corner or travel the world.

You get a range of customized features and services, such as:

  • Minimized wait times and longer appointments
  • 24/7 physician access via phone, email or video visits
  • Same-day or next-day appointments at our La Jolla offices
  • Fast lab results, usually available the same day
  • Personalized wellness plan
  • Nutrition, fitness and stress-management services

Comprehensive Wellness Evaluation

You receive a comprehensive wellness evaluation every year, provided in partnership with UC San Diego Health's Step Family Cardiac Rehabilitation and Wellness Center at Jacob's Medical Center. This helps our experts develop a wellness plan for your health needs.

The evaluation includes a body composition analysis and one-on-one consultations with a registered dietitian and a clinical exercise physiologist. After the visit, you'll receive a full report with personalized dietary and exercise recommendations.
