Circle Medical, launching from this summer’s Y Combinator batch, is a full service medical practice that will come to you. While other doctor-on-demand startups like Heal have existed for a while, Circle Medical’s goal is to provide a service that can used as a regular part of your life, not just in emergencies or last-minute situations. To achieve this, the startup focuses on two pain points that traditionally keep patients tied town to a physical practice. 1st, Circle Medical is considered in-network for over 97% of patients in California who have private insurance. This means a visit normally costs no more than your regular doctor, and often less. The 2nd unique aspect of Circle Medical is that all of its doctors are full time. This means you can pick a doctor and have them become your new primary care physician.
The app shows you a profile and background on all of the company’s doctors, as well as allows you to scan your insurance card and see potential copays in advance.
