"It's a new concept but it's simple. The Direct Primary Care ("DPC") business model was pioneered in 2009 and is now legally enshrined as a unique model of healthcare delivery. The model is similar to how a gym membership works. You join the practice and come as often as you like, with no visit fees. We're happy to provide care in person or remotely via secure video chat, text, email, or a phone call. While we don't take insurance, you'll find that our rates are lower than most deductibles, making Sana Vita Health an economical choice as well, especially when paired with a high deductible plan that lowers your premium so you can save your insurance for when you really need it. We can also accept FSA and HSA payment options."
