Insurance and Medicare control how doctors practice medicine, and have corrupted the doctor-patient relationship. They have also made doctors’ primary responsibility that of “paperwork” instead of medical care. A Direct Primary Care membership model restores the doctor-patient relationship and lets me work for you, not your insurance company or the government.
Furthermore, even though DPC typically provides better primary care at a lower cost than fee-for-service based insurance and Medicare, they do not currently support/reimburse DPC membership fees (please feel free to speak with your Congressmen and Senators about that).
* It is recommended that you have some form of insurance (perhaps a low-premium/high-deductible plan) for major medical expenses such as hospitalizations. You can also use your insurance and Medicare for referrals, prescriptions, laboratory testing, and imaging.
