What is DPC (Direct Primary Care)?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative alternative payment model for primary care being embraced by patients, physicians, employers, payers and policymakers across the United States. The primary goals are to provide a ‘medical home’ for all your primary care needs while promoting a long standing, trusted relationship between a patient and their primary care provider at an affordable, predictable cost.
Your enrollment in this plan increases your access to your doctor and fosters more patient-responsive care. By maintaining low overhead and not spending hours on insurance and reporting paperwork, DPC providers are able to provide you with longer in-office visits, the flexibility of phone and email communication and the option of home visits. Without the restrictions caused by submitting primary care charges to insurance, we can offer a low cost membership plan with a fixed monthly (or discounted annual) fee. Our patients will continue to ask specialists, imaging and laboratories to bill their insurance directly for their typically more expensive services and fees. You can find out more at this website.
