Compass is a membership-based model that provides patients with dedicated time with our Doctor and care team and expanded benefits that are uncommon in most traditional care models. The monthly membership fee is $50 per month and is not covered by insurance plans. In some cases, HSA and FSA benefits can be used to cover the membership fee, but please check with your benefits provider. Hoag Compass does not guarantee coverage under HSA and FSA plans.

You will be billed monthly on the day that you initially signed up for membership. Your card on file will be charged. You can cancel at any time by reaching out to your Care Coordinator.

Your Hoag Compass membership includes the benefits above but does not cover medical appointments. The cost of appointments (e.g. your co-pay and related costs) will vary based on services received and your insurance plan.

The app is available for Apple iOS. The app can be downloaded through the Apple App Store [insert link to app store] by searching for “Hoag Compass”.  The Android app is coming soon.

Labs and imaging appointments can be scheduled at our Hoag Compass office or your lab of choice. Your Care Coordinator can assist in scheduling your appointment at our Hoag Compass lab.

Hoag has an extensive network of specialists to help manage your care. Our Care Coordinators will book an appointment with a Hoag Specialist on your behalf and will share relevant information with them to help with your visit.

We offer extended hours to accommodate your busy schedule. Your doctor is available Monday through Thursday from 8am to 6pm. Your care coordinator is available Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm. You can message your doctor and care coordinator through the app and will receive a response within 24 hours.

You will check-in to your appointment on the Compass app 15 minutes prior to meeting with the doctor. Your Doctor will login at the time of your appointment to care for your needs. We offer a 5-minute grace period. If you login 5 minutes after your scheduled appointment time, you can reschedule your appointment through the app or message your Care Coordinator to assist you.

Prescriptions and prescription refills can be requested through the app. Our care team will send your prescription to the preferred pharmacy specified in your profile in the app. Some prescription requests will require an appointment and are up to the discretion of the Doctor.

Your after visit summary will be posted in the app and will provide details and recommendations from your appointment with the Doctor. All after visit summaries are saved in the app and can be referenced at any time.

Our health and wellness team includes a Dietician, Exercise Trainer, and Mindfulness Coach to support you on your healthcare journey. They will share personalized recommendations with you based on your visit with the Doctor, lab results, and personal healthcare goals. You can message them through the app if you have questions, concerns, and need support.
