Do I still need health insurance if I have a Forum Health membership? Why?
A Forum Health plan does not replace insurance coverage. While insurance is not required to meet with a doctor or select a plan, it often covers a portion of the cost for lab work and other services.
Do I still need another doctor if I have a Forum Health membership? Why?
Forum Health membership is not intended to replace your relationship with a primary care physician. For some referrals and services — like an annual physical, mammogram, or colonoscopy — they might be better positioned to meet insurance requirements. We recommend that you find or remain established with a primary care physician.
Are lab tests included?
Lab tests are not included with payment for your membership plan or welcome visit. This is in part because they might be billable under your health insurance plan. We’ve also negotiated discounted rates with certain labs. Please ask about your options at the front desk.
