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 holistic continuum of care.  Liv’s integrated services support your whole health, giving you confidence in your care, every single time.

We know how frustrating long wait times and unfriendly service are. You deserve quick, convenient care from a compassionate team that puts you first.  Your dedicated care team takes the time to listen, personalizing a wellness plan catered to your unique needs.  We believe it’s what you should come to expect.

Designed by experts who empathize: built for women, by women. We believe your healthcare experience should be created by someone who knows your unique needs firsthand.  We get you – inside and out.

What services does Liv offer?

Your Liv membership gives you access to a full suite of services including gynecology, obstetrics, primary care, mental wellness, and so much more, all under one roof!

Liv mentions members...what does that mean?

Liv is a unique membership experience – our patients, customers, and community are our members.

A Liv membership provides a “concierge” experience, minus the cost.  We deliver a hospitality-modeled experience (think minimal wait times, care built around your needs, and making sure you are heard), but we’re not a concierge practice.  We’ve eliminated the high monthly fees that don’t allow you to use your insurance; in fact, we accept most insurance plans. If we don’t take yours, let us know – we will try to fix that!

Our members pay a low annual fee to access member-only perks – read more below to learn about the advantages of becoming a member of the Liv community!

What benefits do I receive as a Liv member?

At Liv, we cater to your needs. Our appointment times, modality of care, and continued support are dictated by our members.  Your membership gives you access to an enhanced experience within and beyond the four walls of our practice.  Here’s what you get…and with your feedback we’ll continue to expand our offering!

      • Online appointment booking.
      • Text chat with a care coordinator, coach, and health expert.
      • Appointment time guarantees – from same day urgent visits, to flu shots, to well-woman annual visits, to a new pregnancy – we make sure you’re seen in the right timeframe by the right provider.
      • Easy decision making – we take the mystery out of who you need to see and for what health concern – we provide recommendations you can trust to ensure you’re seen and heard, as quickly as possible.
      • Options, ease, and comfort.  Prefer an iced coffee or chamomile tea? A restful or upbeat waiting room experience? A morning or evening appointment? At Liv, your care experience is uniquely designed to provide you with whatever you need for however you’re feeling in the moment. No hard plastic chairs or long lines to check in or check out. No sign in sheet. We make your healthcare effortless and enjoyable, from start to finish.
      • Special events and workshops designed for every woman, on issues that matter to you.  Let us know what topics you’d like us to cover in the comments section and we will listen – we’ve got ideas but we know you do too!
      • Community partnerships with like-minded businesses – we offer discounts on classes, seminars, and memberships with women-focused organizations. Join a community that shares a passion for helping you live your best life.

How does the membership fee work?

The membership fee is a one-time annual fee paid electronically prior to booking 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 most major insurance plans. When signing up for membership and booking your first appointment, you’ll be able to provide your insurance info. 

Depending on your insurance coverage, many of our services are covered, while some are available for an additional fee. We will work with you and your insurance provider to personalize a wellness plan catered to your unique needs .

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.

What is not included in the membership fee?

Additional services that go beyond included assessments and recommendations may be an additional fee, such as mental health counseling sessions. 

In the event that these services are potentially reimbursable by your insurance company, we will support you in submitting documentation in any way possible so you can collect reimbursement.

Where is Liv located?

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