The “Membership Practice” model is one in which each patient who is a member of A Squared Primary Care, PLLC (the “Practice”) pays an Annual Fee that covers most of the primary care received in-office, as well as enhanced services not normally available in a traditional medical practice, such as: extended hours; direct access to Dr. Agrawal by cell phone, email, and secure patient portal; same day or next-day sick appointments; unhurried office visits; short in-office wait time; video visits with Dr. Agrawal; house calls/nursing home visits when necessary; and true coordination of your care with other providers. There will be no other bills from the Practice unless you exceed the services covered by the Annual Fee, as explained below. This new approach is really a return to old-fashioned care. It is a smaller, more intimate Practice that allows you to have a personal relationship with your physician. The goal is to provide care that is more responsive, thorough, and individualized.
Attached is a detailed description of all services covered by the Annual Fee. Please refer to the Our Services tab.
You may be hospitalized at the hospital of your choice. Although the hospitalist service will be the attending physician of record, Dr. Agrawal will coordinate care with the hospitalist as your personal physician and be available for phone consultations. Dr. Agrawal will decide on an individual basis whether a hospital visit is appropriate. If so, each hospital visit will count as two visits and additional hospital visits are $150/each.
Dr. Agrawal will coordinate your appointment with the appropriate specialist(s) to best address your particular medical condition. Dr. Agrawal will closely monitor your progress while you are under the specialist’s care.
Dr. Agrawal will be available by email, cell phone, and secure patient portal after hours and on weekends, except when away for medical conferences and vacation, in which case the Practice will be covered by a colleague. When Dr. Agrawal’s Practice is covered by a colleague, you may be charged a co-payment for any necessary visits, but there will not be a charge for any telephone advice.
Absolutely! Please call the office for a no-obligation meeting to find out if this Practice is a good fit for you.
You may start the process by sending Dr. Agrawal an email at [email protected] or calling the office at 202-559-4450, to request an enrollment package. You will need to sign a Physician-Patient Agreement and submit payment of the Annual Fee in order to become a member. Patients will be accepted in the order in which they join, and once the Practice reaches capacity, Dr. Agrawal will not accept any additional patients into the Practice until an existing spot opens up.
You will need to select another physician. Discuss this with your friends and family. You should be able to receive assistance from the Customer or Member Service office of your health plan.
