FAQs about the Aspirational Health Wellness Program

What Are The Objectives Of The Aspirational Health Wellness Program?

Aspirational Health Wellness is an integrated approach to managing primary care by a multidisciplinary team of professionals dedicated to treating the “whole patient’. Our focus is to have a multi-dimensional approach to disease prevention and health improvement within a pro-active and positive primary care clinic setting. Our team forges a strong partnership with our clients so health goals can be achievable in a trusting and accountable manner.

How Is The Aspirational Health Wellness Program Different From A Gym, Health Club or Community Center Wellness Program?

Our approach is on integrating primary care management with wellness because a large aspect of the conditions managed in primary care such as heart disease, diabetes, weight management, abnormal lipids, liver disease are influenced by lifestyle and nutrition decisions and our goal is to have an expanded team of professionals working within the primary care office setting that can collaborate and deliver a well-coordinated team-based approach. We find that patients who have a trusting relationship with their PCP clinic are more likely to engage frequently with health improvement goals and delay the onset of medications and medical procedures. Our wellness program is firmly rooted within our PCP practice and offers an easy, one-stop approach to overall health improvement. 

What Are The Services Available For Mental Health?

Mental health management is one of the most frequent reasons patients seek PCP care  including care for depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders and grief. We recognize the pivotal role of a PCP clinic to provide a strong foundational support for patients to seek mental health services. A PCP is the first point of contact and is a trusting provider who listens to all concerns and works in partnership to develop a plan of care that optimizes mental health support. In that context, our wellness program instructors firmly integrate mind and body practices in all aspects of wellness including diet, exercise, yoga, and meditation. 

Our near-term goal is to have licensed behavioral health counselors on staff who can provide professional counselling services in collaboration with the medical care. 

We also coordinate care with behavioral health practices, psychiatry clinics and clinical psychology practices for referrals and care coordination. 

Do I Have To Be A PCP Patient At Aspirational Health To Receive Wellness Services?

Since our wellness program is an integrated health approach, you have to be our primary care patient to enroll in the Aspirational Health Wellness program.

If you are healthy and do not have any specific health concerns, you can make an appointment for an annual physical to establish care as a new patient.

Once you have established care as a new patient, you will have access to all our on-site wellness programs. 

What are the fees for the program?

As we are a new clinic, all our first patients who are being enrolled within our program this fall will receive complimentary services.

We will eventually transition to a subscription-based model in which patients will be offered a subscription plan to enroll and benefit from the wellness services.

The proposed fee plan for the wellness program will be as follows: 

Annual Induction Membership Subscription for the Wellness Services: 

  • $199 per member—charged Annually 

PLUS:
Classes will be charged individually as follows: 

Yoga:

  • Personal One-on-One Class: $50 per 1 hr. class
