What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative alternative payment model improving access to quality healthcare with a simple and affordable membership fee. This mean no third party billing and no fee-for-service payments. 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 a low monthly fee, and physicians are accountable first and foremost to their patients.
Because DPC providers avoid administrative obligations to insurance companies, they are free to spend that time listening to and working with patients to create the best treatment plan. 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.
