What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care is comprehensive primary care that is affordable, accessible and separate from traditional insurance based fee for service practices.
In the traditional insurance model, many people today are avoiding basic care because of the inability to pay. They have high deductibles and co-pays for simple primary care. Routine office visits are short and rushed and often with a provider that is not your personal physician. The visits most commonly involve the physician paying more attention to a computer screen than paying attention to you!
Direct Primary Care is Different!
We opt out of traditional insurance including Medicare. This allows Direct Primary Care practices to eliminate the administrative burdens of traditional insurance based practices and focus on you, the patient!
Our patients pay at a low monthly fee to have easy access to your personal physician. Phone calls, texts, emails, telecommunication, office, at home visits are all included in our membership.
Wholesale costs for many common medications will be available. This will save you money and time going to the pharmacy.
We have negotiated discounted lab and imaging services saving paying the insurance deductibles. Sometimes the savings is enough to pay your membership fee for a year or more.
Because Direct Primary Care is not insurance it is highly recommended (though not required) to have medical insurance for all the “big stuff”, like hospitalizations, surgeries, specialist appointments, etc.
