FAQs

What is Liv's care philosophy?

We believe healthcare for women needs some work, and that the status quo isn’t good enough for you.  That’s why we’ve built a healthcare experience around you and your needs – not around insurance companies, doctors, or your employer.

We believe in whole-self care, which is why we’ve assembled a diverse clinical team dedicated to a comprehensive continuum of care.  Liv’s integrated services support your whole health, giving you confidence in your care, every single time.

What makes Liv different from a typical doctor's office?

We believe you deserve coordinated, convenient care from a compassionate team that takes the time to listen. At Liv, your Care Team works together to personalize a wellness plan around your distinct needs and goals. Our innovative care model puts you at the center, making it easy to start out healthy and stay that way.

We offer primary care, mental health, obstetrics, and gynecology all housed in one location. We focus on the patient experience and using technology to streamline it by booking appointments and communicating test results. For problems requiring a specialist, we promise your records will make it to their offices and in very complicated situations, the providers will speak with the referral doctor directly.

At Liv, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all healthcare approach – because you deserve to be treated like the whole woman that you are!

How does the membership fee work?

The membership fee is a one-time annual fee that is not collected until your first appointment. It renews annually unless you choose to cancel – but we hope you love Liv as much as we think you will!

Do you accept insurance?

Yes! We accept Aetna, Cigna, CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, United Healthcare, and Medicare. During your digital check-in process prior to your first appointment, you will be able to provide your insurance info.

The cost for your visit will depend on your insurance coverage, co-pays, and any deductibles you may have. We also offer cash-pay options for those without insurance or with unique aspects to their plans and coverage. Our team is here to help you figure it all out in the least costly way for you!

Can I use an FSA or HSA for the membership or services?

Yes! You’ll be able to use your FSA or HSA for the membership fee and all FSA/HSA-eligible healthcare expenses.

Where is Liv located?

Liv is located at 1443 U Street, in the heart of DC one block away from the Metro. We can’t wait for you to see our new space – we know you will love it as much as we do!

At what hospital will you be delivering?

Our affiliated hospital is Sibley Memorial Hospital, located at 5255 Loughboro Rd NW, Washington, DC 20016.

Are partners allowed at sonogram visits?

Unfortunately, Liv (along with all other Advantia practices) has decided to take extra COVID-19 safety precautions by preventing partners from joining sonogram visits. We do encourage FaceTiming them so that they can be as present as possible for the experience. With that said, we will revisit this policy as COVID-19 guidelines evolve and look forward to welcoming partners to sonogram visits very soon!
