Flex Family Health Direct Primary Care adding family physician to practice on June 1st

Thursday, May 21, 2020

To recap, Flex Family Health is a primary healthcare clinic that opened April 1, 2019 in Billings, Mont. The founding clinicians, Cole and Katie Whitmoyer, of Laurel, have implemented the Direct Primary Care model into their clinic practices. What sets Flex Family Health, and the DPC model, apart from the current healthcare system is that patients’ health insurance will not be billed, nor accepted, for rendered services. Rather, patients pay a low, flat rate each month for individual ($59/mo) or family ($149/mo) memberships. The price of an individual membership is less than a typical cell phone or cable bill. The outcome of this unique model is increased access, affordability and transparency to healthcare services when compared to the conventional healthcare delivery system (fee for service model).

Included in the memberships are unlimited visits without copays, extended visits without wait times, same or next day visits, 24/7 access to providers, virtual visits as well as discounted labs, procedures and imaging.

With the success and continuing demand for services in the first year of operation, Flex Family Health will be adding Dr. Jennifer Fowler to increase capacity, add experience and provide more comprehensive pediatric services.

Dr. Fowler, a native of Glasgow, Mont., is a board certified family physician who has been practicing medicine for over nine years. She graduated from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in 2008 as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and completed the Montana Family Medicine Residency program in Billings in 2011. She will see patients of all ages (0-99+), which will expand Flex DPC’s services to include children ages 0-23 months.

She is accepting new patients now and will begin seeing them starting June 1st.

Flex Family Health is the first, and only, DPC clinic in Yellowstone County and believes that a new, flexible, and accessible patient-provider relationship will provide the residents of Billings with a great option for high quality care.

Flex Family Health is located at 3307 Grand Avenue, Suite 201, Billings, Montana 59102.
