LEESBURG - You or a family member is ill and need immediate healthcare service, but you don’t have healthcare insurance?
Ultimate Health Direct Primary Care (UHDPC), “a new and innovative personalized approach to medical care management, which is an affordable patient center model that provides access to unlimited primary care” may be just what you need.
UHDPC opened to serve the Leesburg community August 16th, 2021. The only ultimate health direct primary care medical facility in Leesburg is owned and operated by Amanda Neil, a Board-Certified Nurse Practitioner MSN, ARNP with a focus on adult geriatric medicine. She has been providing quality health care since 2006.
UHDPC does not accept any health insurance. Instead, patients pay a monthly direct pay flat fee that should cover 80 to 90 percent of medical conditions patients’ desire medical care for, such as routine and preventative care, sick visits, weight loss and chronic disease management. The payment is based on a subscription model. A patient pays based on their age an affordable monthly fee. Those ages 18-39 pay $65 monthly, ages 40-64 pay $85 monthly and 65+ pay $100 monthly. The patient has 24/7 access directly with the Nurse Practitioner. There are no co-payments for office visits or virtual visits. House calls for sick visits within Leesburg city limits. Long term member contracts are not required.
Amanda Neil, who makes home visits in the Leesburg area, “Believes that the best health care comes from a meaningful partnership between her and her patients” and has found that direct primary care is a great way to facilitate this.
“I hope the new UHDPC medical clinic will foster meaningful relationships that will bridge gaps in Healthcare for Leesburg and our surrounding community residents”, said Candace Chatman at the grand opening on August 14. “I look forward to a healthier community because of the impact that UHDPC will provide.”
“With the high cost of medical care, UHDPC a different kind of model for healthcare can become the catalyst to service our uninsured healthcare and lower income residents”, said Leesburg Mayor John Christian, who presented a proclamation on behalf of the city of Leesburg at UHDPC’s grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony August 14.
Amanda Neil relocated to Lake County in 2016 and is very passionate about preventative care and mental health and is excited about the opportunity to influence the lives of others and work diligently to help maintain her patients’ optimal health.
