Direct Primary Care

Direct Primary Care Model – Lets talk about it!

Direct Primary Care (DPC) an alternative model instead of the traditional platform for your health care. This model is not a new concept but is a model that allows us, the providers, to spend a more than adequate amount of time with you and your family while drastically reducing the cost of your health care by providing many of the standard services directly to you for an affordable monthly membership (or single time walk-in fee)  (see FAQ’s page). Another perk is unlimited communication with your provider, longer appointment times, or tele-visit via web-cam/phone when needed which will provide you with more time for your family or work. You can also receive wholesale lab work and so much more with this model while either having no insurance, holding onto your current insurance plan or maintaining a high deductible catastrophic insurance plan for the “what if” moment. Whichever you choose*, this model will still end up saving you money and provide more personalized care. 

The nuts and bolts….

The standard model of health care is a fee for service model where the providers are pressured to see patients in very brief (7-10 minutes) appointments to allow for the volume of patients per day to reach status quo and thus income for the clinic and the provider…..it is a business model and really takes away from you–the patient and your needs. You end up waiting longer than you actually see the provider.  

This Direct Primary Care model is entirely focused on you with health and valuable time with your provider at its core. It is what health care should strive for to reduce unnecessary cost and promote actual health, well-being and education. It provides better health outcomes and personally benefits you–the consumer–while decreasing ER visits and hospitalizations. See the FAQs page or contact us for further questions.
