Founded in 1999, veriMED Health Group is one of the largest Primary Care Physician groups in Central and West Florida.

The veriMED Health Group Clinic Providers understand the need for consistent care and treat each patient like family.

Insurance Partners

veriMED Health Group accepts a wide variety of Medicare Advantage and commercial insurance plans.

Medicare Advantage Plans are health plans that bundle Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance), Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) and often additional services, like drugs, gym memberships, dental services, etc.

We work closely with our Health Plan Partners CarePlus, Devoted Health, Freedom Health, Optimum Health Care, Humana, Wellcare, and United to provide the best possible care for their members.

In addition, veriMED Health Group has contracts with a wide variety of commercial insurances to not only assist the senior populations, but to heal and care for adults at all stages in their life.

Please visit the individual clinic pages to see which insurance plans are accepted at each location.

OUR TEAM

As co-founder of veriMED Health Group, the way we interact with our patients is of utmost importance to me. To us, our patients are not just numbers. We want to educate them about their health and manage their care together with them, as a team.

Our focus is on prevention. We want to prevent hospitalizations and enable our patients to live long and happy lives. It is therefore important to us, that our doctors and providers have enough time to dedicate to each patient.

We see our patients when they need it. The availability of same-day appointments and a 24/7 helpline is an important part of this promise. A main area of attention at veriMED Health Group is the early detection of cancer, which is vital to its successful treatment. Once any health issues have been found, we will do everything in our power to cure our patients.

All staff members we hire are trained to provide a top-notch customer experience and to ensure that our patients truly know that we care about them.
