MDVIP a scam on patients and a scam on the Dr's they signup

Posted Thu September 18, 2008 12:00 pm, by JEFFREY P. written to MDVIP Inc

They get doctors to sign up and offer you an exception medical care program. The sales pitch is that your doctor will be going from 4000 patients down to only 600 patients. They tell you you will get more personal care and experience because your doctor won't be treating as many patients. Sounded good to me and it must have sounded good to my dr he signed up and we joined them. The price is $1500 a year and they can break it into quarterly payments of $475. Start date for my Dr was 08/01. First they charge my card in advance on 07/07 prior to the start. Then they don't tell you or inform you that your Dr failed to enroll 600 patients and only has approximately 200. I discovered this on 09/18 over 1.5 months after the start. The prgram isn't working for my Dr and now I won't be able to see my Dr under their plan because he got scammed just as much by them as I did and he won't be under thier program any more. If they knew this they should have informed me an refunded my 1st quarter payments for both me and my wife. They misrepresented the program and even when they knew of issues never informed me.

I have filed a dispute with my credit card and I am also informing them of the demand for refund for misrepresenting the program and services they offer. They need to offer a refund to myself and other patients covered under their MDVIP Program since the doctor that everyone signed up for will no longer be with them and the services promised can no longer be offered.

The accounts I need to have refunded on my credit card are:

The fact that these doctors are requiring a long time patient to pay
an annual fee of $1,650 (not covered by health insurance) so they can
retain access to their doctor is a sin.

My mother in law was sent a letter by her physician advising her of
how it would allow his office to better serve her. This is pretty
funny as a few weeks earlier when she went in for a flu shot they told
her to go tho the local CVS Pharmacy.

Simply a Scam or Immoral. Your call...

I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with the MDVIP

I am enrolled with the program in San Diego, with Dr. Bruce Sachs.
Dr. Sachs has been enrolled with the program for several years. Dr.
Sachs has shared with me his graditude to MDVIP for developing this
model, so he can provide quality, preventive care to his patients.

I am very happy with the MDVIP program, several of my friends are also
enrolled and delighted with their health care. MDVIP's ten history
has shown that 98% of enrolled patients renew each year as the
beneifts of the program are realized and a renewed sence of trust in
the MDVIP doctor and healthcare provided is secured.

It is far from a scam, it is healthcare at it's finest!

I received a call at 0949 hrs this morning from Nick at MDVIP. Nick
informed me that they would credit my credit card back for the entire
$750 for both my wife and myself.
They had just become aware of the issue and also informed me that all
patients who signed up under my doctor that didn't want to be with a
new dr in the plan would get a refund.
Nick also informed me that either I may not have received the info or
misunderstood that each Dr in the plan is allowed a max of 600
My Dr had only signed up about 200.
Nick took care of this issue and resolved it to my satisfaction. I
will post an update when the credits post to my credit card.
MDVIP responded quick to resolve this issue.

Please tell me how I can also get a full refund. Signed up prior to
12/09 and was terminated shortly after from my job. Mdvip charged my
card again in March 2010. I've yet to use their services/or a
physical. Just called mdvip for refund, they only want to prorate one
month=$175.00. What about the $625 already paid? They tell me that
even though I have not had a physical, I paid $625 to be a member of
my dr's practice. I feel like I've been scammed, and would like my
money fully refunded. Would appreciate your info. Thanks.
