Vacations and travel look a little different this year, but you still need to take…
Is Direct Primary Care Right for You?
Remember the days when doctors did house calls? Neither did we—until now. Over the last 30 years, healthcare has changed. The relationship between doctor and patient became more about insurance reimbursement and less about the patient.
Direct primary care clinics are changing that relationship for the better.
When you are a member of a Direct Primary Care (DPC) clinic, insurance doesn’t get to dictate your care. When you call the doctor’s office for an appointment, you can see your doctor (oftentimes, the same day!), not the doctor’s assistant or anyone else. Once you become a member, you have the ability to email and text your physician at your convenience…not theirs. And it doesn’t stop there. Over-the-phone appointments, video chats, and even house calls ( just like the days of old) are all ways you can receive the treatment and personalized care you desire.
Is this a replacement for health insurance?
Direct Primary Care is not a form of insurance, and these clinics do not accept insurance payments. While it is estimated that direct primary care physicians can treat 80-90% of medical situations, it is strongly encouraged that all DPC members have medical cost sharing, catastrophic coverage, or a traditional health insurance plan to offset a large medical expenses.
