  • How is equalityMD's membership so cheap? Will I still get quality care?
    At equalityMD, we work with a telehealth partner that has negotiated rates directly with various provider networks nationwide and that has 2 in-house pharmacies. Normally, doctors and digital healthcare companies are forced to work in a "managed care" model (meaning insurance companies are involved). Managed care models take control out of the hands of doctors and puts it in the hands of third party middlemen that don't actually treat patients. These third parties add overhead and unnecessary expenses to patients' bills and pay doctors less. By removing middlemen from the process, patients pay less and doctors actually get paid more. Also, doctors are able to have organic relationships with patients because they don't have to worry about restrictions placed on them by third parties. Happy doctors = Happy patients. Because our telehealth partner has negotiated rates directly with large provider networks (the doctors who'll treat you and get to know you as a human being), we're able to pass the savings along to you! You'll get high quality care for budget friendly rates! It's a win-win! Our telehealth partner also has 2 in-house pharmacies. This means they don't have to negotiate rates with big pharmaceutical companies and they don't have do deal with insurance carriers. Keeping prescription fulfillment services in-house dramatically reduces the price patients would normally pay for their medications (even with insurance!). Bundling telehealth visits with prescription fulfillment services creates low-cost, high-quality, comprehensive care options. Our cash-pay model (meaning no insurance) is fully transparent so you'll never see any surprise charges. And you'll never have to deal with insurance companies! We keep things simple at equalityMD: Low cost High quality LGBTQ+ affirming care Comprehensive telehealth & prescription fulfillment services Transparent pricing Peace of mind
  • My insurance already covers telemedicine. Should I still join equalityMD?
    Some insurance plans cover telehealth services. However, many insurance plans don't give you much choice when it comes to receiving LGBTQ+ affirming care. If you do have insurance that covers telehealth, ask yourself these questions: Are the clinicians within your covered network trained to deliver LGBTQ+ affirming care? Do you get to choose which doctor you get to see? Are your in-network doctors available when you are? Are you concerned about coming out to your assigned, in-network doctor(s) as a member of the LGBTQ+ community? Does your insurance cover 100% of your virtual visit AND your medications? If you have insurance but are looking to explore more affordable options and LGBTQ+ affirming care, equalityMD is the perfect companion to your existing insurance plan! 1. Care Designed for You: True Inclusivity: Many plans offer a superficial nod to LGBTQ+ needs. EqualityMD goes deeper. Our network of LGBTQ+ affirming providers have been trained to understand your unique needs and meet you where you are. 2. Save Money & Time: Hidden Costs: Traditional telemedicine can be a financial and time consuming maze. Some insurance plans say they cover telehealth. However, after you complete a visit you might be forced to meet high deductibles, pay additional copays, cover medication costs, and pay other surprising bills... all after you've paid a hefty insurance premium for your policy. Transparent Pricing: EqualityMD offers simple, transparent, affordable subscription pricing that's all-inclusive. You'll never be hit with any surprise bills. 3. Get the Care You Need, When You Need It: Long Waits & Limited Availability: Insurance companies often have long wait times and limited provider access, especially for mental health. 24/7 Access & Freedom of Choice: EqualityMD provides guaranteed 24/7/365 access to LGBTQ+ affirming care. You choose your provider and get the care you need when you need it. 4 out of 5 of LGBTQ+ individuals say that mental health is their primary healthcare concern. Many in our community are frustrated with of limits of traditional telehealth options, particularly when trying to find therapists who truly understand them. EqualityMD's LGBTQ+ affirming telehealth platform creates safe digital spaces where patients can relax and enjoy being their authentic selves. We empower you to become the superhero of your own healthcare story by instilling a newfound sense of agency, dignity, and trust.
  • Do equalityMD's providers deliver LGBTQ+ affirming care?
    Yes! To ensure you receive LGBTQ+ affirming care, we've made sure that our telehealth partner's network of providers have access to evidence-based, LGBTQ+ cultural competency training materials and are informed of evolving best practices in advancing health equity.

  • Why did we create equalityMD?
    Millions of LGBTQ+ Americans face a harsh reality: Healthcare is a battlefield. The National Institutes of Health designates us a "Health Disparity Population" due to: Systemic discrimination: Discrimination from providers and insurance companies causes many LGBTQ+ Americans to avoid seeking medical care. This can result in poor health conditions, undiagnosed diseases, and the inability to live a fulfilling, healthy life. Unique health concerns: Our community has specific needs often overlooked by traditional healthcare. Inadequate access to care: Finding culturally competent providers often relies on unreliable word-of-mouth. The Outcome: Fear and Silence 1 in 3 LGBTQ+ individuals experience discrimination during healthcare visits. 1 in 4 avoid care altogether, jeopardizing their well-being. 1 in 6 are denied care by providers. 1 in 8 live in states where doctors can legally deny care to LGBTQ+ patients. Our Story: We've Lived the Problem We're Solving We're members of the LGBTQ+ community and have experienced these struggles firsthand. The pandemic exposed these systemic and generational healthcare inequities to the world and created an opportunity for us to change how our community both perceives and receives care. At equalityMD, we offer: Inclusive Care: Our national network of providers are trained to deliver LGBTQ+ affirming care. Personalized Approach: We focus on your medical needs, as well as your unique intersectional identities, to ensure you have the best healthcare experience possible. Accessibility for All: We've removed barriers that have prevented our community from enjoying affordable and accessible healthcare, regardless of insurance status. EqualityMD: We're Returning Humanity to Healthcare We're democratizing the healthcare landscape and delivering affirming, inclusive care to the historically marginalized LGBTQ+ community. Join us in advancing health equity and building a future where everyone can enjoy the care they deserve.
