Direct Primary Care (DPC) is a meaningful medical alternative to fee-for-service insurance billing, utilizing instead, a monthly membership fee that covers all or most primary care services.
Laboratory tests and medication costs can often be offered at substantial reductions with in-house medication dispensary. DPC practices typically provide patients significantly greater direct access to their physician and superior care since:
- The number of members is sizably restricted, typically only a small fraction of the number of patients in an insurance/Medicare based practice
- There are no oppressive insurance and Medicare regulations and restrictions
- The burden most physicians face of hours and hours of paperwork every day has been removed, leaving more time and energy for patients.
