Will I still be penalized by the government if I do not buy health insurance but buy Nice memberships instead?
Nice does not count as heath insurance and you will still be penalized by the federal government if you do not buy health insurance. What Nice does do is it allows you to buy a health insurance plan with a higher deductible (deductible is the amount you have to pay before your health insurance starts paying for medical care) which will in turn have a lower monthly premium (premium is what you pay each month to have insurance). Nice will cover most care that you would have had to pay out of pocket for anyways.
What services are included?
Nice is a primary care clinic. We can do most things a traditional clinic can do including x-rays, blood draws, labs, and checkups. All in the comfort of your home. We even carry common prescription drugs and deliver them to your home or work. For a detailed list you can read our list of services page.
Do you serve the area I live in?
You can do a simple zip code search to see if we serve your area. We're adding new regions all the time.
Do you accept health insurance?
We do not. That is one of the main reasons we can make this form of healthcare so nice and affordable.
Can I use my health savings account (HSA) to pay the membership fee?
You should consult with your accountant or tax advisor. Many of our members do use their HSA to pay for their membership.
How does the membership work?
It's easy. The Individual Membership is for one person. The Family memberships are for multiple people. You don't need to be related or live together. If you want to add/change who is on the membership after signing up there is $150 signup fee per person added/changed. There is no sign up fee for adding newborns, we love babies!
Can I skip the email or video visit and just have someone come to my home?
No you can't. We need to collect as much information up front as we can to make your home visit experience as nice as it can possibly be.
Does the membership include vaccines?
No it does not. Vaccines are covered by most people's health insurance. You should consult your health insurance carrier for vaccine questions. We can, however, do wellness visits.
How many visits can I have?
As a member there is no limit to the number of visits you can have, and to make it even easier, more than one person can have a visit at a time.
Can I add more than 5 people to the Family membership?
For each additional person over 5 people it only costs $40/person/month for the Nicest and MN Nice Group memberships.
