The affordable Membership Care Program (MCP) allows our patients to have unlimited office visits, no copays, and flexible appointments. These are some of the necessary tools to help you to live a happy and healthy lifestyle. When you pay the membership fee to join MCP, you become a member and benefactor of St. Joseph Primary Care. The membership fee to join the MCP is based on patients age and you may qualify for a tax-deductible. The membership is valid for a year and needs to be renewed every year after. As a member, you receive high quality, comprehensive and personalized Christian health care from Dr. Trinh, a Princeton graduate, a board certified physician who has over 20 years of experience in practicing medicine. As a benefactor, the membership fees helps support our efforts in performing corporal works of mercy through providing charitable care and a “backyard” medical mission in the Wake County area for our neighbors who lack insurance or who are challenged economically. Click here to learn more about how your membership fee will help us and the community #GivingBack instead of making the health insurance companies richer.
To help us continue to make this program affordable, we ask our patients to pay their membership fee in full at their first office visit. Doing so, (a) you get a comprehensive lab panel with each annual wellness visit plus (b) the membership fee may qualify you for a tax-deductible.
We hope you to join the Membership Care Program. To join, submit the application on the link below and pay the membership fee.
We understand not everyone can pay the membership fee in full. If so, please let us know at (919) 386-6866 and we will work with you. Thank you for your support.

*Note: This is NOT a replacement for your health insurance. The annual membership fee covers only services provided directly by St. Joseph Primary Care. If you have health insurance, we will use your health insurance to pay for labs, x-rays and specialists. Anything not covered by the patient’s insurance is the patient’s personal responsibility. We DO NOT file or get pay by the health insurance providers, including Medicaid and Medicare. However, as your healthcare provider, we have negotiated with lab companies and other ancillary service providers to get discounts of up to 75% for our uninsured patients.
Think of us like a gym. When you want to workout, you can go in as often as you want and not have to worry about paying for each visit. This way, it encourages you to exercise more. The more you exercise, the better you get. Think of us the same way! We want you to get healthy. The Membership Care Program (MCP) works just like a gym membership. Our patients (members) pay the annual membership fee upfront and after the one-time fee, you are covered for as many doctor visits as you may need in one year – including physicals and wellness visits. The fee is paid whether the patient sees the doctor or not. Also, they get a great discount on labs and medications. Basic labs and medications are available in-house. This will save our members an extra trip to a local pharmacy or laboratory facility. Since we do not file with the health insurance providers, it reduces the staff overhead costs. For that reason, the membership fee to join the MCP is affordable, convenient, and quality care. As your healthcare provider, we want to be there when you need us. To accomplish that, your appointment is flexible. We offer same or next day appointment, plus longer time with your doctor. Note: Our patients do not have to be a member to be seen by a doctor. We also offer a Direct Primary Care for our patients (non-member). Fees, including labs, medications, and other procedures, will be charged at each office visit.
For patients with a health insurance, you can join the MCP. Note: (1) we are an out-of-network provider, (2) labs, medications, and other medical procedures (through a third-party) may be covered by your health insurance providers. Please check with your health insurance provider and ask for the “out-of-network” benefits.
TAX BENEFITS. Some portions of the annual contribution (membership fee) may be tax-deductible due to receipt of clinic services. We will provide annual statements for tax purposes. Thank you for your support and join our cause in #GivingBack to our community.
