WITH YOUR MEMBERSHIP

We prescribe exercise, nutrition, sleep, and techniques for mental wellbeing as our first priority. We track each patient within our community and reward healthy behavior.

 

A different approach

Our practice does not believe any medical condition defines you. We will work with you to overcome unproductive thought patterns, such as self-limiting and maladaptive beliefs.

 

We recognize the failure of the current medical system and believe it is time to change the incentives and use evidence based techniques to promote healthy behavior instead of relying strictly on prescription medications. Our practice focuses first on the five pillars of health: fitness, community, nutrition, rest, and play.

We do not strive for perfection but we do demand progress and a productive attitude from every member of our community and will lead by example by participating in the programs with you.

How it works

For an initial membership fee of $200 (HSA eligible) you have an initial consultation meeting to ensure the program is a good fit and develop your plan. Then we set you up and start tracking your health for the first month, and you get access to discounts with companies, such as ClassPass.

 

Your monthly membership fee is $100 if you maintain the health behavior compliance targets.

 

If you don’t meet the baseline healthy behavior targets however, you are charged $200 instead.

If you have three consecutive months where you do not meet the baseline requirements you are removed from our practice and the ability to rejoin in the future is at our discretion. We cannot help you if you are not ready to help yourself.

Simple appointments for medication refills are $50 for members. Normal medical consultations are $200.

Getting started is easy and risk-free 

 

Meet our community physician

Dr. Kevin Pacheco, DO graduated top in his class and was a Chief Resident in his program. He was making a few hundred dollars an hour in a Los Angeles emergency department but realized after 5 years that he didn't believe in what he was doing. He opted to shift all his focus to truly improving health and preventing disease rather than providing "band-aid" medicine and "sick" care.

 

He believes that strategies such as anti-inflammatory diets and using cognitive behavioral therapy are adjuncts that decrease the current over-reliance on conventional treatment. He also believes in living by example and will be participating in challenges and friendly competitions beside you.

 

He is also an outspoken advocate for both physician and patient accountability not only for shared decision making but for shared outcome production. He hosts an unapologetic podcast titled One Honest Doctor that may offend some listeners.

 

Proceeds of this program will help to fund another project he is leading to expand the reach of specialist expertise, particularly in conditions that have the highest incidence in pediatrics and young adults.

He does not accept insurance and he personally has a high deductible insurance plan with an HSA. He will not prescribe opioids, benzodiazepines, or other controlled substances.

Why it works

We are utilizing known strategies to promote healthy behavior, such as loss aversion and social proof.

Knowing that you will have to pay for your non-compliance and could be removed from our practice increases your chances of adherence. Social proof is strongest if the individuals in our community are dedicated to a shared mission that provides a positive influence.

 

Tracking your progress and having an outcome-based mindset ensures you become healthier.

 

Our current discount partners and recommended products

We will continue to seek affiliate discounts and pass 100% of the savings onto our community.

Our mission

Our mission is to make you healthy and then find ways to reward you for your healthy behavior. We are starting by providing discounts with partnering companies and we hope to leverage our outcome data to negotiate additional savings in the future, such as discounted health insurance premiums.

 

Our long-term plan is to lobby for HSA coverage of fitness memberships, health tracking wearables, and other technologies used in this program. While it is an obvious sign of the backwards incentives within the conventional healthcare system that they are not currently covered, physicians share the responsibility for not having prescribed these interventions.
