"Oakleaf Direct is not insurance, but it works alongside self-funded insurance. OakLeaf Direct is Direct Primary Care (DPC), an innovative and alternative payment model which improves access to high value primary care providers. The defining element of DPC models is the individual trusting relationship between a patient and their primary care provider. Claims are not submitted to insurance and no traditional fee for service reimbursement occurs. The removal of the "middleman" from the insurance process for primary care increases time available for patients, decreases out of pocket expenses, and decreases administrative burden and overhead.
OakLeaf Direct provides an opportunity for self-funded employers to improve overall employee wellness and to reduce administrative costs. Primary care services through OakLeaf Direct should meet many of your healthcare needs. If specialty or out of network care is necessary, your primary care provider will refer you to the best possible option. This encourages responsible, cost-conscious health care utilization."
