What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a more affordable, meaningful alternative to conventional fee-for-service insurance billing. An annual or monthly fee is charged to access primary care services which provides most, if not all, of your annual health needs including clinical, laboratory, consultative services, and medication management. The membership fee secures your spot in a limited health care practice where small patient panels and longer visits are optimized for better, overall health. Direct Primary Care benefits patients by providing substantial savings and a greater degree of access to, and time with, your health care provider.
