Direct Primary Care
THE AFFORDABLE ALTERNATIVE TO THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE
Direct primary care allows you to visit the doctor without any of the hassles or costs that usually come with it, while getting all of the same medical services.
Better Access to Doctors
A fixed membership fee covers unrestricted access to doctors, unlimited office visits, appointments, lab tests and procedures performed by your primary care physician. With no co-pays or deductibles, you can focus on your health concerns without worrying about unexpected costs.
Low Medical Costs
With a direct payment membership/subscription, the patient pays a monthly, quarterly, or annual fee directly to their physician. The cost is based on a single flat rate for each provider, not on per service charges. In addition to providing more transparency on your costs of care, this removes incentives for costly or unnecessary procedures.
Telemedicine & Video Chat
Avoid waiting rooms and the hassle of working around your busy schedule. Providers are able to connect with their patients without the hassle of making an in person appointment, while patients are able to get their questions answered before making a trip to the doctor’s office under the care of physicians.
Direct Primary Care Information
What is direct primary care?
DPC allows patients to design a flat monthly membership fee that provides them with predictable, reliable access to a truly functional primary care practice. Emphasis is placed on caring for the whole patient by integrating traditional medical services with other necessary resources such as nutrition counseling, mental health support, and pharmacy services.
Is direct primary care insurance?
No, direct primary care is not insurance. It’s a membership. At any time, if you need to see a doctor, you visit your direct primary care physician. If you have an illness or an injury that requires immediate attention, you go to the emergency room or urgent care.
