What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care, or DPC, is a model of healthcare that puts patients first by getting rid of the red tape that constrains traditional practices. How? It’s simple: we don’t accept insurance, and – believe it or not – this actually saves you money in the long run.
How will this save me money?
You won’t have to pay a co-pay for office visits or routine physicals. Also you’ll be able to avoid many visits altogether by sending your questions directly to us via email and text – something you won’t get from a traditional practice. We’ve negotiated amazing deals for prescription medications, blood tests, X-rays, and MRI/CT scans on your behalf. If we had contracts with insurance companies, we would be legally obligated to charge higher prices.
More importantly, since you are getting all this amazing care from us, you can cut way back on your insurance premiums. Most DPC patients find a high-deductible, low-premium insurance plan so they’re covered in the case of a major health issue. But leave the rest of your healthcare to us.
Will I benefit from direct primary care if I don’t require frequent medical attention?
Of course. Everyone benefits from a service tailored directly for them. That’s why we offer truly custom healthcare. We’re here for you if you’re sick or hurt, but we also help you proactively maintain good overall health. Minor procedures like joint injections and wart removal are included. Appointments for urgent needs are usually scheduled the same day or the next day. Every visit with us will be thorough, relaxed, and as long as you need to address your health concerns. The longer you are our patient, the more we learn about your health and lifestyle, and the better we can help you maintain that health.
