What Is Direct Primary Care

Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a new spin on an old concept - healthcare that is truly about the patient. By bypassing the "middle man" (insurance companies) and using a monthly membership model, DPC physicians are able to provide patients with more comprehensive and individualized care. 

Traditional (insurance-driven) medicine relies heavily on data collection and meeting measures that are dictated by non-physicians. Doctors in these traditional practices are also limited by low reimbursement rates from insurance companies. This means that these physicians must see a higher number of patients in a day and spend more time on their computers, ultimately leading to less time for the patient. 

DPC Benefits

  • Cost effective

  • After-hours care

  • Longer, more personalized office visits
