We are considered an out-of-network provider and do not contract directly with any insurance company. We will provide you with a detailed receipt (superbill) that you can submit to your insurance company and they may reimburse you. The amount of reimbursement depends on your individual plan and its benefits. We recommend you consult your insurance carrier for further information on your out-of-network coverage from an urgent care provider.
Many patients find that after factoring in co-payments, co-insurance, and/or deductibles our fees are lower than the out-of-pocket expense they would incur at an ER or urgent care facility.
We are unable to submit reimbursement claims to Medicare. Medicare will NOT reimburse patients for our services. We are happy to treat Medicare patients, however no claims can be made to Medicare.
Simple, transparent pricing. What if I go home to find a huge bill in the mail? With Poipu Mobile MD, you always know your price up front and will never receive a bill from us.
If you are not completely satisfied with your experience, we will provide you with a full refund.
J. Wayne Burris, MD, MPH, FACEP
Dr. Burris is a Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physician and Fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians with over 10 years experience providing care in emergency rooms in California and Hawaii. He attended medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel-Hill and completed his residency training at Loma Linda University Medical Center & Children's Hospital.
While working in all three emergency rooms on Kauai, Dr. Burris found that he treated numerous patients with minor illnesses or injuries that could have easily and safely been cared for outside the ER. Patients spend valuable vacation time driving to hospitals and sitting in waiting rooms, seeking help for their minor medical needs, often ending up with enormous bills. Recognizing the need for a better alternative, Poipu Mobile MD was born. Dr. Burris seeks to help people with their basic urgent care needs within the comfort and privacy of their home, hotel, condo, or vacation rental while sheltering them from the expense and stress of a trip to the ER.
When Dr. Burris is not treating patients you can find him surfing at his favorite breaks in Poipu, running in preparation for the next Kauai Marathon, or spending time with his wife and children.
Our Physicians & Providers
In addition to Dr. Burris, we have several other physicians, highly experienced ER Nurses, and Nurse Practitioners who provide house call coverage. All physicians are Board Certified in Emergency Medicine or Family Medicine and have at least 10 years experience working in emergency rooms and hospitals. Our Nurses and Nurse Practitioners have extensive experience in emergency medicine and work under the direct guidance of Dr. Burris.
