OR IS IT TIME FOR A CHANGE?
Consider a Direct Primary Care (DPC)
Practice where there are no rushed office visits and where the Doctor concentrates only on you and not on moving to next patient. With DPC, the primary relationship is directly between the patient and the doctor. It is a great alternative to the traditional insurance-based, fee-for-service model.

Direct Primary Care Q&A
Direct Primary Care is a healthcare delivery model in which the primary relationship is directly between the patient and the doctor. It is an alternative to the traditional insurance-based, fee-for-service model. In general, direct primary care offers greater access and more personalized care to patients in exchange for direct payments from the patient on a monthly or yearly contract.
Physicians can evaluate the needs and wants of their unique patient populations and practice medicine accordingly. Patients relying on a direct primary care practice can generally expect all primary care services covered, including care management and care coordination seven-day-a-week, around the clock access to doctors, same-day appointments, office visits of at least 30 minutes, basic in office tests at no additional charge.
Because patients have unlimited access to their physician, it has been shown that patients in a direct primary care practice receive a higher quality of care, that is personalized resulting in healthier and more satisfied patients.
In a traditional primary care practice, doctors are compensated based on how they code and the quantity of patients they see, rather than based on the quality of care that they provide.
In a DPC practice, quality of care is the number one priority. By cutting down on the number of patients, doctors working in a DPC practice are able to spend a generous time with patients; patients have easier access to appointment times that meet their scheduling needs; patients are guaranteed to see their doctor, not another provider; patients are able to reach out to their doctor via e-mail and cell phone.
These are just some of the benefits of a DPC practice.
Concierge practices charge an “access fee” for non-covered services which range from $1,600 – $2,000/year. In addition, they still submit bills to the insurance companies for reimbursement for each visit and many require that the patient continue to pay co-payments at the time of each visit. The only difference between a Concierge Practice and other medical practices is the fee charged for non-covered services.
In a Direct Primary Care practice, the affordable annual fee covers both access and most primary care services. There is no billing of claims to insurance companies nor are co-payments collected.
