Direct Primary Care.
Direct Primary Care is a healthcare delivery model designed by Primary Care Physicians. It's a simple concept of care. A direct relationship with patient and Doctor. It's memberhip based medicine. For a monthly membership fee you have access to your personal Physician by phone, text, email, video conference and office visits. There is no co-pay for office visits and you have as much access and care as you and your Doctor decide you need without changes price. In DPC you also have access to discounts on laboratory work, imaging procedures, in-office Primary Care procedures (like skin surgery) and medications. DPC is not health insurance. In a DPC practice your health insurance is not used to pay your Doctor but your Doctor may help you to use your insurance for other things, IF, it's more cost effective fro you. Often times we find Physician negotiated cash prices are more cost effective for you than using your health insurance for Primary Care purposes.
