What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) includes physicians charging a monthly membership fee that covers most of what the average patient needs. This includes visits and drugs at lower prices, instead of accepting insurance for routine visits. As a result, DPC can provide substantial savings to patients. Consider the following:
- Cost of visitâ€”Free with monthly membership
- Copay costâ€”No copays
- Length of visitâ€”Typically 30-60 minutes (traditional doctorâ€™s office visits are less than 20 minutes)
Overall, we have seen Direct Primary Care save employers money, provide better healthcare to their plan members, contribute to increased productivity in the workplace, and bring a more personalized experience.
