Medicare Transition

Effective April 1, 2020 Bethesda Physicians will be opting out of Medicare and will operate solely as a fee for service practice.

Please note, we are NOT transitioning to a “concierge” practice. There is no annual membership fee.

We are aware that our patients may have questions regarding this transition. Letters were mailed to all of our patients who currently have Medicare and to those patients who will be eligible for Medicare in the next 2 years: the letters contain detailed information regarding this change, a list of frequently-asked-questions (FAQs) and a Medicare opt-out contract.

For your convenience, we have posted the letter, FAQs and contract below.
