A creative approach to health care, Direct Primary Care (DPC) gives family physicians a meaningful alternative to fee-for-service insurance billing. This unique, growing population of doctors seek ways to provide above standard patient care, often with accessible work hours and concierge services.
DPC rewards family physicians for caring for the whole person while reducing the overhead and negative incentives associated with fee-for-service, third-party-payer billing. This creates an environment where your employee can pay a low monthly fee to have access to their physician, even at times where standard doctors are unavailable. This low monthly fee can also be absorbed by you, the employer. Some direct benefits of DPC:
- Better health outcomes – better access to health physicians empower an authentic relationship and comprehensive patient care
- Lower costs – Affordable, transparent costs based on a flat fee paid directly to the physician ensures that you will get the most for your “medical dollars”. DPC doctors have access to networks to help you save on prescriptions, procedures, and often have access to specialty doctor advice on behalf of the patient
- Enhanced patient experience – Patients receive a better experience. Period. Imagine texting a picture of a rash instead of being asked to come into the office? Imagine calling the physician at 11:30pm to ask about your child’s fever. Imagine going home from the office with a prescription that costs much, much less. DPC can provide patients this, and much more
