What is Direct Primary Care?
Direct Primary Care (DPC) is an innovative healthcare model where physicians partner with their patient families to provide primary care services using a membership fee. By moving outside of the administrative burdens of the traditional insurance-based billing system, DPC practices provide a wide spectrum of care in a transparent, affordable manner.
DPC is an innovative alternative payment model improving access to high functioning healthcare with a simple, flat, affordable membership fee. No fee-for-service payments. No third party billing. The defining element of DPC is an enduring and trusting relationship between a patient and his or her primary care provider.
