WHAT IS DIRECT PRIMARY CARE?
What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative alternative payment model improving access to quality healthcare with a simple, affordable membership fee. No fee-for-service payments. No third party billing. The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and his or her primary care provider. Patients have extraordinary access to their physician for as low as $60 per month, and physicians are accountable first and foremost to their patients. DPC is embraced by health policymakers on the left and right and creates happy patients and happy doctors all over the country!
Because DPC providers avoid these obligations to insurance companies, they are free to spend that time listening to and treating patients. And because DPC providers eliminate the significant overhead costs of participating in insurance, they can pass the savings on to you, the patient – and give compassionate, attentive and timely care at an affordable cost.
