THERE IS NO CATCH
We are so excited to offer full and unlimited primary care and urgent care for New Yorkers who do not have health insurance. Our monthly “No Insurance No Problem Unlimited Urgent Care and Primary Care Membership” costs only $260/month.
There is no catch
Memberships are not only low cost but there is no ongoing commitment. Our intention is to make this offering as accessible as possible and to offer all New Yorkers the quality primary care they deserve, when they need it. You can sign up for a 3 month membership with the click of a button to see for yourself the value of unlimited healthcare, and if for any reason you aren’t able to get the value you are looking for (which we highly doubt will happen!) you are free to end the membership after the initial 3 months.
Give yourself the gift of health by looking through the membership options at the link below and finding the No Insurance No Problem Membership that is right for you. Connect with our team for a thorough, inclusive, and warm healthcare experience where you will feel like family. We would love to get to know you.
Memberships offer an exceptionally high value for patients without insurance who can rack up very high medical bills at urgent care or in any other healthcare setting. Sadly, in our current health care system, patients with no insurance coverage often avoid healthcare altogether and their heath suffers as a result. I would strongly encourage our self-pay patients to consider purchasing a membership with us if it is in reach.
HEALTH MEMBERSHIPS TO SUPPLEMENT YOUR INSURANCE
UNLIMITED CARE WHEN YOU WANT IT
JUST ONE LOW MONTHLY FEE FOR MEMBERSHIP
New York City is fast and New Yorkers expect the best in every aspect of their lives. Health is no exception. But when we are at our sickest, convenience and efficiency are also priorities and we flock to crowded urgent care centers, where we receive care the day we need it. But its nameless, faceless medical attention from care teams who know nothing about our health and don’t know our whole story. And then we get the urgent care copays and urgent care deductible bills. Where is the value? Why can’t your insurance cover the comprehensive healthcare you need?
Alternatively there are traditional primary care offices (like ours) with stronger, experienced primary care providers who are often booked out weeks in advance. We take insurance and bill reasonable rates for general primary care. But when you need a deeper investigation into a health problem, multiple follow up visits in series lead to copays, deductibles, and lab bills for blood tests racking up. And working only within the confines of what insurance will cover leads to incomplete diagnosis and treatment.
Here at Bethany Medical Clinic, when you are sick we want you to have the best support in reaching your best health! If you don’t have insurance or you want to take a deep dive into your health beyond what insurance will cover, these memberships are for you!
An Unlimited Primary Care and Urgent Care membership will guarantee you a same day or next day appointment with a caring healthcare team for the low cost of $199/month with NO copays, no deductibles, and no hidden charges from our clinics.

Yes memberships are designed to work best alongside a regular health insurance plan. The benefit is that you can access unlimited care when you need it, worry-free about high bills due to copays and deductibles. Typically the amount an insured person would spend on ONE visit to an urgent care clinic is more than our monthly fee, to give some perspective on the savings a typical patient will see in purchasing a membership with us.
We bill your visits to your regular insurance plan and collect what your insurance deems appropriate. For any patient responsibility costs (copays and deductibles) these are considered prepaid in your membership fees. So you are free to follow up with us to ask the questions you need, and get the full support of your healthcare team, without fear of surprise high-dollar bills after the fact. With a membership, there are no surprises and no barriers to getting complete primary, preventative and urgent care (and also unlimited specialty care with respective specialty memberships.)
For generally well patients, the Unlimited Primary and Preventative Care memberships are a good fit. Your care needs will be met and exceeded 6 days a week, mornings, evenings, and Saturdays via video or in person.
For focused and personalized care without limits, around a specific complaint, need or medical diagnosis with one experienced provider who knows you (Dr. Peters – our founder and board-certified Internist!) the Health Goals membership is a great solution.
Similarly for a dermatology concern needing focused and personalized expert care with our board-certified dermatologist Dr Salma Pothiawala, choose the Skin Goals Membership.
For a mental health concern or a need for weekly psychotherapy and/or psychiatric prescription management, the psychotherapy membership will limit your costs, while removing all barriers to you getting the complete care you need.
And for a hormone imbalance or concern, our hormone goals membership will give you access to work directly with our expert in all things hormone-related, board-certified endocrinologist Dr. Rick Berbano, to get the results you need and take control of your hormone health with no care restrictions, no delay, and no surprise additional costs.
Unfortunately cosmetic dermatology services are not included in most of the memberships, but we do have a “Tox” membership to offer cost savings for regular facial injectable needs with our expert dermatology team. There are also many cosmetic services offered at the practice that can be purchased in the “Beyond Insurance” care menu. PRP injection for hair loss (that will stimulate hair regrowth reliably); trusculpt for body sculpting; and ultherapy for a nonsurgical facelift have all shown excellent results for our patients and are now accessible for purchase via the same link:
This is an offering for those men and women who want to go beyond the basics to use the most cutting edge diagnostic tools and heath data we have to understand their own health and their own health risks. Its a half-day assessment performed by Dr Peters and her colleague, a board-certified and highly experienced Psychiatrist, designed to give you the understanding and the actionable plan you need to optimize your medical and mental health. We invite anyone interested, to purchase this care offering and take a deep dive into their health with us (with the efficiency we know New Yorkers need!) with the end goal of optimizing their mood, concentration, energy, and performance in all areas of life. So you can live the life you really want.
There is no long-term commitment. If you are curious about a membership give it a try for 3 months and then feel free to end it if it does not work for you. The other Beyond Insurance care offerings are one-time purchases only. When you purchase on the url you can access discounts on future care, special pricing, and rewards, but there is no obligation or commitment to ongoing purchases. These offerings were designed in response to the concerns and the barriers we frequently hear about from our patients, and we believe they are a path to excellent care and health outcomes with limited costs for our patients. But it will be up to each individual patient to determine what approach to their healthcare is best for them and we will be here to support you in achieving your best health no matter what you choose.
Dr Peters and Austin Hampton, PA, have developed a care plan that meets the primary care needs of our transgender patients, that is based in the most current data from well designed clinical trials and studies. After finding this was a need and a gap in care for our patients, we have been excited to fill that need with caring, compassionate care that is based in evidence always. In addition, Dr Berbano will work closely with our transgender membership patients for all hormone care and gender-affirming hormone therapy. The membership also includes regular visits with one of our psychotherapists if this is a need.
This membership offers the most inclusive care and is the best value of all the memberships. You will be able to access personalized care from our experts in Primary Care, Endocrinology, Dermatology, Psychotherapy, and Nutrition, virtually or in-person when you need. Its a concierge care offering that is unparalleled all under one roof, with no additional costs beyond your membership fee. All for a fraction of the cost of a single concierge physician’s care in New York.
Yes. The memberships for self-pay/uninsured patients are also available with our practice. The fees are 30% higher than the monthly fees listed for any membership, and the memberships must be purchased from our team separately. Memberships offer an exceptionally high value for patients without insurance who can rack up very high medical bills at urgent care or in any other healthcare setting. Sadly, in our current health care system, patients with no insurance coverage often avoid healthcare altogether and their heath suffers as a result. I would strongly encourage our self-pay patients to consider purchasing a membership with us if it is in reach.

NO! We need carbohydrates as part of a healthy diet for energy, fiber, vitamins and minerals. What’s most important about carbohydrate consumption is the kinds of carbohydrates you choose and how much you are eating.
Everyone is different, so there is not specific diet that is best for you. HOWEVER, it is safe to say that the best diet for you is one that is balanced with healthy proteins, carbs, fats, veggies and fruit and a diet that you can sustain for life, and not just a short term.
We all crave foods for different reasons – some crave junk food when they are low on energy, emotional or stressed. It’s important to figure out why you are craving these foods to help stop craving them. In general, the best way to stop cravings is to stay fueled through the day with healthy meals and snacks, aim for 6-8 hours of sleep, drink water through the day and surround yourself with healthy foods to avoid going for the junk food.
That is totally up to you!!! Everyone chooses to cut out meat for their own reasons and dietitians support any reason you have for that. However, it is still important to make sure you are getting plant based protein through your day and having a well balanced diet.
No, do you not NEED breakfast. However Breakfast is a great way to start your day with important nutrients to help keep you fueled through the day. Some people are not as hungry in the morning and that is fine as long as you are not ravenous by the time you get to lunch time!
