McGilligan MD is currently full, however you can still sign up for the wait list. You will not be charged anything until we do a meet & greet to review the necessary paperwork.
We do not accept any insurance. However, we do accept you! We quit taking insurance so that we could give patients more time and not cram you into a 10-15 minute slot where you get 5-10 minutes with the doctor. Since this is a Direct Primary Care practice we are limiting the practice size to around 500 patients. A traditional practice generally has around 2,500 patients and in some cases 4000-5000 patients.
We charge a membership fee, $960 a year for an individual, broken into monthly payments of $80. Membership includes all your office visits and many in-office procedures. We also have couple and family pricing and invite you to checkout our membership page for details.
Summary: Time, Convenience, & Save Money
Dr. McGilligan tries to be as inclusive as possible with her professional services however there are some low cost extras at times. Any services performed not performed by McGilligan MD, are not included. Medications and adminstering medications (B12 shots, Testosterone, etc) are done with an additional fee. These fees are minumal and we make the patients aware of them before hand.
Example: If you have a pap smear or a skin biopsy, Dr. McGilligan doesn’t charge for the procedure, but there will be a charge for the pathologist to look at the samples under a microscope and give a report.
We offer lost cost labs (most common labs are between $4-$12) for those who want the labs billed to your account. Imaging can be ordered at a local imaging facility that offers competitive pricing as well. Ofcourse you can always choose to use your insurance.
Absolutely not. However, membership can give you a peace of mind that your doctor is available when you need her.
It also allows you to know that you’ll always be able to access your personal physician, not an unknown doctor on call. With membership, we will see you the same day or the next business day, so you won’t have to wait weeks to be seen or end up in an urgent care.
No. Dr. McGilligan will see you as a patient even if you don’t have insurance. The membership fee covers all of your visits and insurance is not billed.
It is still a good idea to have a health insurance policy for unexpected emergencies and expensive events such as surgeries.
Membership in a direct primary care practice allows you to receive high quality primary care to best keep you healthy.
Even when healthy, having a personal physician allows you to focus on preventing disease and maintaining wellness.
When was the last time you had an in-depth preventative wellness visit? We can help with nutrition counseling, physical exercise, and mental health. You’ll know that you have a doctor at the ready if you get a sinus or bladder infection. And with our in office pharmacy, you can leave the office with your prescription in hand, skipping the lines at the pharmacy.
Whether you’re traveling or you’re home here in Cincinnati, when you have an acute problem we’re here for you! And best part is – no wait times and same-day/next-day visits!
Getting ready to travel internationally? We can use telemedicine to help solve most medical problems while you’re abroad. Never again do you have to worry about finding an urgent care or wondering about a provider’s skill level.
Think of the monthly membership fee as a way to help cap your medical expenses.
We will try to treat as many things as possible ourselves, but sometimes a patient may need to see a specialist.
Dr. McGilligan lives here in Anderson and will refer you out to a great local doctor.
If you don’t have health insurance, she will speak with the specialist about pricing. If you do have insurance, the specialist can bill your insurance company.
We all hope to never have to go to the hospital, but sometimes it is necessary.
Dr. McGilligan is currently not seeing patients while they are in the hospital, but she will communicate with the hospital physicians, obtain records related to your hospitalization, and see you quickly when you get out to help get you back to health and keep you there.
Dr. McGilligan is an internal medicine physician, which means she takes care of anyone who is 16 years of age or older.
This is a great question. Since we have multiple ways of communication, we can frequently help you while you are out of town with either phone calls, email, text, or video conferencing visits. There is also a network of Direct Primary Care physicians in other areas of the country whom Dr. McGilligan can contact and try to get you in to be seen if your injury or illness requires it.
It appears that for now, you cannot. There are bills in congress currently to help patients be able to use an HSA or FSA card to pay for their monthly membership fees. If you choose to use your HSA or FSA card for fees, we recommend you verify this with your accountant or financial advisor.
If you have an HSA, contact your representatives and tell them to support bill H.R. 365.

Right now, the target around 500 patients. Dr. McGilligan wants to be able to provide impeccable service to all of her patients and get them in when they need to see her or talk to her.
Just for a frame of reference traditional practices no longer accepting patients have around 2,500 patients.
