Direct Primary Care


Direct primary care allows you to access affordable doctor visits in Kansas 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 direct care physician in Kansas. 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 Kansas direct primary care 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. Kansas telemedicine 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.
