"Hearthside Family Health is a subscription model practice, also known as Direct Primary Care (DPC). The DPC model is created to emphasize the power of the relationship between "provider" and "patient". DPC gives medical providers and their patients a meaningful alternative to fee-for-service insurance billing, by instead charging patients a monthly set fee. This fee covers most primary care services including in-office clinical services, consultative services, care coordination, and comprehensive care management. In our practice, the provider and patient have open communication and access. Fees are low, as the payment is made directly from the patient to the provider; there is NO billing to an insurance company."
