"Direct primary care is a family medicine model of practice where we are here for you, and we work directly for you, not for your insurance. We don't bill your insurance for anything we do in our office, although you will still need an insurance plan for hospitalizations, surgeries, specialist visits, labs and xrays.
Patients are paying higher premiums, deductibles, and copayments, meaning more out-of-pocket costs, and more reluctance to get the care you need. We have a set monthly fee you can budget for, and may allow you to get a policy with a lower premium with a higher deductible. Our membership is not insurance, and may not be applied toward your deductible or HSA, but we still may be able to save you money with lower cost labs and medication.
Direct Primary Care (DPC) welcomes technology to streamline care (like texting and telemedicine) for convenience, and also preserves the old-fashioned family doctor relationship. We believe this is what patients really want and deserve, the time and attention to treat both mind and body in treating illness and maintaining wellness."
