what is direct primary care?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative model of health care that does not bill insurance. Patients pay a monthly fee and in return receive individualized, full-service primary care from their chosen doctor. Care includes preventive exams, and management of most acute and chronic conditions. Patients have a direct line of communication with their own doctor and can expect same day or next day appointments with little to no wait times. There are no copays or surprise bills.
How can this model work? It turns out, there is an incredible amount of waste in our current insurance-driven healthcare system. By stepping out of the insurance ecosystem, we can greatly reduce overhead costs and pass those savings on to our patients. Cutting out middlemen and keeping things simple allows us to have more time to do what we love - spend time with patients!
