About Big Tree
Big Tree Medical Home is a group of medical professionals who like to think of ourselves as people who enjoy helping our patients by hacking the health care system. You can call us health care hackers, or …doctors and nurses. We all went into health care because we wanted to help people get better, not because we enjoyed “the system.” We are simply leveraging modern technology to help patients that have little access to care.
From our home base in Columbia, Missouri we work with individuals, small groups, small businesses, and large businesses to provide solutions for their health care dilemmas.
We believe that some access to good care at a fair price is better than no access to great care at a high price. Or at least that people should be able to choose which of those two options they want to pay for with full knowledge of what they are getting. 20% of working Missourians are uninsured and 50% of them have a chronic medical condition. We are trying to help them get access to affordable care. Our full site can be found here with info on how we provide a comprehensive medical home (including live patient visits as needed) in our home office in Columbia and our mobile clinics. You can read some news coverage here and here. We work with a local radio station and you can hear some more info here on their podcast. If you are uninsured and are interested in a low-cost alternative that includes the Big Tree Unlimited membership at no additional cost, check out our solution in connection with Shared Health Alliance and Sedera, a health sharing plan, here. With this solution, individual plans start at around $230/month and family plans at around $625/month.

Spectacular service amazing health professionals and lab tests included for zero extra dollars! I would recommend to everyone but then they would get too busy soooo only Some of you should go and love it like I do! Lol– Kent
I needed an appointment right away and they were able to get me on the same day! It was a painless process to enroll as a new patient. Honestly, the hands-down best experience I’ve had in a long time. Everyone was super nice and down to earth. I love that I was able to send a text/email and they responded so quickly. I can’t say enough about it, I was so pleased!– Jackie
I have been paying $1200 per month for family insurance as a self-employed individual, with a 12k deductible. When my premiums rose to $1400/month this year, I decided it was not financially responsible to continue.
My first visit, I got a maintenance medication for 1/4 of what my prescription copay would have been with BCBS -(less than a dollar today) and a “sick visit” medication for less than $2.00. Yearly lab-work stuff is going to be $20. This place is the solution to a broken system.– Vicky
I felt it was very easy to talk with the [Doctor] and tell her my issues without being judged. The cost is cheaper than when I had insurance!– Vickie
