Choosing between paying cash or using insurance for a procedure? we can help you decide.

No two cases are the same. Our team is ready to work with you in reviewing your medical benefits to decide if it is cheaper to pay out of pocket for a service, or to use your insurance plan. We can also help you decide if it makes sense to have a procedure done this year or next based on your deductible.

Paying Cash

Exemplar Care has negotiated discounts with partner providers in the Des Moines metro on a variety of procedures and services. We do this because most procedures – when paid for in cash – can be provided at a discount up to 50% when compared to insurance rates.

Using Health Insurance

In your individual case, it may make sense to use your insurance. For example, if you are certain you are going to meet your insurance deductible in a given plan year, it makes sense to run your procedures through insurance. Even if paying cash is cheaper, it will not count towards your deductible. Our team will help you make the best decision.



Our team maintains a list of trusted cash-priced providers. If you need a service or procedure you don’t see listed, contact us and we will work with you toward a solution.
