Parsley Health, a new kind of doctor’s office that charges a monthly fee and doesn’t take insurance, is planning to take its business virtual.

The company, which operates three clinics in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, on Thursday said it raised $26 million to help pull off that expansion.

White Star Capital led the Series B round, with FirstMark Capital, Amplo, Alpha Edison Partners, Arkitekt Ventures, and Galaxy Digital joining in alongside One Medical founder Tom Lee and Flatiron Health CEO Nat Turner. In total, the company’s raised $36 million from investors.

Parsley Health’s approach of offering care for a monthly fee is similar to direct primary care, a small but fast-growing movement of pediatricians, family-medicine physicians, and internists. This group doesn’t accept insurance, and instead charges a monthly membership fee that covers most of what the average patient needs, including longer visits and some prescription drugs at lower prices.

The boost in funding comes as investors are pouring hundreds of millions into companies looking to shake up the way patients go to the doctor’s office.
