My Value Physician

Exceptional Health Care Made Affordable with University Hospitals Parma Medical Center

In a comparison of similar physician fee schedules, sometimes additional fees are included for simple doctor’s office visits. The best way to avoid paying these expensive facility fees is to be seen by a My Value Physician (MVP).

The My Value Physician program is a product of the Community Health Collaborative partners of University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center, University Hospitals Parma Medical Center, Southwest General Health Center and the Community Medical Group. This collaborative effort includes qualified and caring primary care and specialty physicians who do not charge facility fees.

Experience The MVP Difference

During routine doctor’s office visits, patients in Northeast Ohio are often confronted with expensive facility fees. Health systems have the choice to charge facility fees for a basic office visit to their employed physicians. These facility costs for seeing a physician and receiving services in these types of physician practices can be substantially higher compared to the costs for the same services in an independent physician office.

At UH Parma Medical Center, patients will not pay a facility fee for a doctor’s visit with any primary care physician employed by UH Parma Medical Center or in an independent private practice. In addition to excellent, personalized care, the team members at UH Parma Medical Center are advocates for low-cost health care and do not believe in charging an extra fee for primary care services. Look for the MVP shield proudly displayed in these physician offices.
