we're so glad you're here
We believe that healthcare should be affordable, accessible, and personalized to everyone. That’s why at WELL & Company, we put our patients first and never let insurance, paperwork, or long wait times come between you and a healthy life. Located in Alexandria, MN, WELL and Company provides medical care and treatments the way they should be provided.
Our approach is simple: a membership to our clinic provides you and your family unlimited access to your practitioner with transparent yet affordable medical services. There are no surprise costs or back-and-forth communication with third-party companies. We build relationships with our patients to offer the best solutions regarding their health.
what is direct primary care
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative approach to healthcare that puts the emphasis back on the patient-physician relationship. A focus on wellness, longer patient visits, and increased access have the ability to improve better health outcomes and lower overall healthcare costs. An affordable monthly membership fee allows DPC physicians to work for their patients and not for the insurance companies.
Patients who join WELL & Company pay an affordable monthly membership fee for their direct primary care services. As a member, you and Saundra Lauer, DNP, FNP will build a relationship so she knows your health history and goals. You can schedule unlimited office or tele-visits. You'll spend more one on one time with your provider and less time in a waiting room. Our medical team is also available to answer your questions via secure portal email, phone, or text. Your membership includes discounted pricing for certain labs & medications.
Although insurance is not needed to be a member of our clinic, pairing a DPC membership with an insurance policy is a great way to keep you and your family protected for more. As members, you can come to our Alexandria, MN clinic for all primary care needs. Paired with a high-deductible plan, you and your family can be covered for emergencies that require hospitalization, saving money on out-of-pocket expenses. We proudly partner with Sedera as an option for individual and family healthcare costs beyond primary care.
At WELL & Company we provide primary care services only. There is growing evidence that top-level primary care can reduce the need for more specialized care as chronic situations are better managed and concerns are addressed early on before they become emergencies. Of course, when the need arises, we will refer you to a doctor with the specialized expertise you may need to treat your particular condition.
You will save money long-term by combining a DPC membership with a higher-deductible health insurance policy while remaining confident you can afford the routine medical care you need. You won’t feel the need to postpone primary medical care.
Direct Primary Care medicine is rapidly increasing in popularity. If you have a low-deductible traditional plan and don’t wish to submit to your insurance company yourself, it may not be the right model for you.
Sadly, those plans are fast becoming history. The majority of Americans have high-deductible plans -- insurance for catastrophes only and get little in return for all the money they fork over to those plans. If this is your current situation, WELL & Company is your perfect solution.
